Hello, I was wondering if the common, non-magnum 2 3/4" ammo, such as birdshot, buckshot, and slugs can be reliably used in the 870 Marine Magnum with a 3" chamber. Are there any risks to feeding and ejection, effects on accuracy, or a buildup of plastic in the longer chamber?

Yes you can. The chamber measurement is the upper limit of shell size that can fit, not a demand for that specific shell size.
