FWIW, even if it were in mint condition, it should not be shot with ANY modern shotshells, period - even so called "low brass", "field" or "Target" loads.

The reason is that in 1926, all the ammo companies upgraded their shotshell loadings - causing even Ithaca to discontinue the Flues Model & introduce the much stronger NID Model.

It should not be shot at all, until a qualified double gunsmith checks it out as OK (not some AR parts-changer).

Whether it's for a project or "as-is", if it checks out as okey to shoot - proper, low-pressure ammo for these old guns is readily available from the likes of RST, PolyWad, Kent Cartridge, & GameBore.
