Yes, you can adjust the headspace adjustment ring, but if all your adjustment is taken up, a gunsmith can trim a little off the back of the ring and you can start all over again. Since most of these old guns were sold or retired because they ran out of adjustment, I generally do not give details on how to adjust them. Take it to a gunsmith and have it inspected first, then you can have him show you how to adjust it. Also, avoid using full power 12 ga loads in a 1897, it will increase the headspave very quickly.
