.20 gauge 2 3/4 magnum load.

Magnum usually means that there is more shot in the shell. Not more powder. If it was a bullet in a case, then magnum would mean more power in the shot and could be problematic. Since you are talking about a shotgun....a few more pellets/balls will come out of the barrel but it won't be shot 'harder' or with more force than any other 2 3/4 shot.
Thanks for the reply.
I've had this shotgun since I was eight. Love to use it for Grouse,but as you said with a much milder load. As I am more of a BlackPowder rifle guy I always thought the term "magnum" was referring to the receiver, as least as far as shotguns go. Nice to learn more though.
Thanks, Andy
