40 to 60 years old doesn't really qualify as an old gun. Modern ammo concerns (other than steel shot concerns) generally relate to guns produced before WW II or even earlier - Damascus barrels or guns designed for blackpowder are the biggest concerns.

40 to 60 years isn't old :P 40 years ago, I was shooting guns that were 40 to 60 years old and they worked fine on what was modern 40 years ago 8) We even had plastic hulls :wink:

I don't know anything about a Valmet.
