The 2 3/4 - 1 1/4 - 7 1/2 is the old live pigeon load. It is also known as 1 1/4 oz. of shot @ 1220 fps.

Though not a current legal ATA trap load, I remember reading that the pigeon load was sometimes allowed in the early days of trap and is a common load when shooting "games". Size 7 1/2 shot was preferred for live pigeons as a live pigeon must drop within a 40 yard circle. Size 8 shot did not always penetrate a pigeons head,

I’m thinking of outfitting a safari to the dark continent. Any idea what kind of black powder it requires? No 6 Grain Black?

No, but I personally know several people who have hunted in Africa. One of which was my grandfather who shot the 12th biggest black rhino of all time, which was the also the biggest since 1900. I would not recommend anything BP unless you really trust your PH with your life.
