Can 3 inch magnum shells be used in an old shotgun?
First of all you would have to determine if your gun will accept 3" shells.Second,if your gun is very old it may not be adviseable to fire it at all.Have a qualified gunsmith check it out.
In a word, NO. When you say very old and worn out you don't want to add the word MAGNUM. DO NOT USE 3" SHELLS.

A Remington model 11 shotgun, semi-automatic (based on the Browning A5 or Auto-5 hump-back design). Cobain's shotgun was 20 gauge and the shells he used were standard two-and-three-quarters inch birdshot loads. The gun was old; this model of shotgun was only made 1905 to 1947. Apparently one of Cobain's good friends bought it used at a sporting goods store, purchasing it for Cobain at his request a month or so before he died. Read More
No, it is not. While the Winchester Model 1897 shotgun is a very robust design, it was not designed for magnum shells. The chamber length is 2-3/4" only. Additionally, it was never designed for shot shells loaded with steel shot. Only lead shot (or a suitable substitute) can be used in an original Winchester Model 1897. The Model 1897 is one of John M. Browning's very best designs and patents. Winchester conducted a long-term durability… Read More
Yes you can. The casing of .38 special shells is a mere .10 inch shorter than a .357 magnum shell and will fire easily in a .357 revolver. I've owned a .357 revolver for years and shoot .38 special ammunition in it all the time. Side note: Don't try it in a .357 semi-auto pistol (like a Desert Eagle.) At best the gun will jam and at worst it might cause an unsafe pressure build… Read More

It all depends on whether it is a 3" magnum, trap grade or field grade shotgun, and the condition that this shotgun is in. If it is new in the box and all the papers are included you could get around $550.00. If it has been used and is in 90% of new condition, you could get around $350.00 Read More

I'm not aware of a .45 Magnum. There is a .44 Magnum. The 44 magnum is typically a revolver round, very high power. The 45 ACP is typically used in semi-automatic pistols. The 45 ACP is not as powerful compared to the 44 magnum (mostly due to the amount of propellant in the 44 magnum compared to the 45 acp). Read More

"There is no such thing as a black powder shot gun shell, for shot guns they loaded it the same as a regular musket only instead of a single ball they put multiple smaller balls." The above answer is wrong. At least after 1870. Early shotgun shells during the 19th century were filled with black powder, switching to smokeless powder in the early 20th century. Black powder is still used today in blank shotshells, and… Read More

The term magnum was first used with the .357 Smith & Wesson Magnum (to use the entire name) to designate a cartridge that had higher energy than the parent catridge it was develoepd from.

Well......... As far as I know, a 209 primer isn't a paint primer at all. It is an ignition source for the powder in a bullet. There are a few different types, 209 being one of the most common. They're most commonly used in shotgun shells, and black powder rifles. Read More

I too have an R. Wakefield double barrel shotgun. I bought it at a garage sale about 18 years ago. Unfortunately I don't know much about it either. Apparently, it was made in London, England.

I would recommend only using the black powder shells, though. If you would like to… Read More
