Mike: no > 100 year old gun can be presumed to be safe, with any load, until it has been evaluated by a double gun specialist. |
Please see the FAQs esp. "Is my shotgun safe to shoot?"
After that evaluation, and establishing that there are no cracks in the head of the stock, 1 oz. at 1200 fps target and game loads (no steel) would be a good choice. Shot size does not matter.
