Also... You see warnings when a feller buys an old gun too... Chambers were not always 2 3/4,3 or 3.5 inch... A modern shell in one of these would not only have the higher pressures of modern powder loads but where the crimp opens in a bore diameter area would be even worse...

The guys who find OLD guns often bought what these guys call "wall hanger" art as they do not have steel barrels... They have the "hammer welded wire" damascus type construction and these were only the best option when they were the only option....
