Don't shoot a 3" shell in a 2 3/4 chamber. These are the lengths of the shell after firing. (The crimp unfolds)

If you shoot a 3" shell in the shorter chamber, the crimp will unfold in the forcing cone, and the shot and wad will have to be forced narrower to pass the smaller opening, raising pressures.
