What size shells can be shot in a model 1897 Winchester shotgun Also what can be safely shot in this shotgun for duck hunting without using lead?

The shell size is normally stamped on the barrel near the reciever. Shells have been made in many sizes over the years ranging from inch & a half mini shells up to three & a half inch magnums. If you cant find a size marked on the shotgun you should have a gunsmith inspect the gun to determine proper size. A shotgun that old cannot fire steel shot. The barrel steel is too soft and will be ruined by steel shot.
