10 GA 2&3/4"

I have an old H&R Heavy Breach single bbl 10 Ga, in the short 2 3/4 shell, and a bunch of old paper shotgun shells. My Grandfather bought it back in the 20's. I have not fired it since the mid 80's. I doubt the old shells still work. I used to hunt birds and raccoons with it when I was a boy. Long and heavy, kicks like a mule with OO Buck, but it is VERY deadly.

Does anyone know where there is a source for the 10 Ga 2 3/4" shells? I want to start hunting with it again. Thanks in advance!!!

10 ga.

Are you sure about 2 3/4"? Could they be 2 7/8"?
If so, RST makes that size.
Here's the link:
