    Your 1937 20 ga, if it has a 2 3/4" chamber, and is in good condition, should be safe to shoot with any standard factory load. I would not shoot heavy loads, but any standard 7/8 oz 1200 foot load should be ok. If you have doubts, have a good 'smith check it out.

    If the action is worn and the gun is loose, it is a wall hanger unless you have it tightened. Briley does good work on vintage SXS's.

    *20Lite

    Ultra Low Recoil
    20 2 3/4" Lite 1075 3/4 7 1/2 25 Hi-Antimony
    Lead
    *20 Lite not designed to function semi-autos.

    I looked and did not find pressure's, is the above your load? Say's it's not for autos so must be relatively low. Sometimes its on the box or call Fiocchi.
