2 3-4” almost never. If the gun has been in the us long? If so most likely answer is somebody eased the chambers from 2.5 to 2.75. Measure the wall thickness. If greater than .100 you should be ok with same pressure loads. If under .080 I would not

Prior to the Proof House revisions of 1925, 2 1/2" chambers were (usually) marked 1 1/8 oz. and 2 3/4" chambers marked 1 1/4 oz. Any almost 100 year old gun deserves a good check and clean, with a bore scope examination and wall thickness

Talk about barrel heavy, my .22LR has a 30" #3 barrel. It's all barrel. Seems to carry well, though heavy.
