Shooting Laminated Steel Barrel Shotgun

I loaded up some light, 2 dram, blackpowder 12 ga blanks. Just the powder with an overpowder wad. I want to just make some noise and smoke with an antique G W Smith English Laminated Steel barrel shotgun (barrels marked England). It does not seem they would generate much pressure with no projectile. Does anyone see a problem? I was also thinking of shooting a light 2 dram black powder load with 1/2 ounce of shot in a shortened 12 ga shell. It seems that is such a light load any solid old shotgun should handle it.
