That's cool. Like I said, with the nitro proofs you're not likely to hurt anything. Heck I've used modern smokeless shells in 2 1/2 inch damascus chambers when I was young and dumb and never had a problem. (kids, don't try this at home) I just think it may pattern better with shorter shells but if you're happy with the way it shoots thats fine too.

The old shotty is the only gun I kept from the previous collection,beeing a family heirloom it stay's in the family
I got a first generation colt ,never fired ,never dry fired,and in 100% new condition ,and you can say ..hey, no gun is a safe queen in my house ,but the idea of firing that gun would make me go crazy too
