AND, in 1926 all the ammo companies across the board upgraded their shotshell loads to ones loaded with new/different powders to higher pressures than were previously made - why special, low-powered shells from RST/etc should be used in thse older guns ILO what some think are low-powered loads but are actually not ( modern "low brass", "target" or "field" loads).

If your Baker is a 12ga (most likely), and if a qualified double gunsmith checks it out as ok to fire at all, it may be safe to shoot with modern 20ga ammo through a barrel adaptor/insert (which by themselves are strong enough for firing modern loads).

I wouldn't shoot modern ammo in those twist bbls, though, w/o full-length bbl liners (IOW, not with just a chamber adaptor).
