Can I safely do this?

I am curious to know if I can reload shotgun shells and .38 special brass with blackpowder? Reason being most of these calibers were at one time blackpowder? Long as I use the blackpowder shotgun loads in a break action there shouldnt be a "dirty" problem

Two good answers already.

I know of people that have antique shotguns with damascus barrels that load their own black powder shotshells. Smokeless powders would blow them up because of the higher pressures.

You need to get the correct loading data for black powder shotgun shells...and for handgun ammo.

WARNING! When you read the loading data you have to keep this important piece of information in mind. Black powder is measured by volume, while smokeless powders are measured by weight. Be sure you don't mix it up. (Some might point-out that reloaders often measure smokeless powder using a volumetric measure. Yes. But things like the Lee loading "scoops" are numbered. A .3cc scoop will always measure the same amount of volume of smokeless powders, but the WEIGHT depending on the type of powder used, will vary. There are charts that cross-reference how much weight by grains of a particular powder is in a fixed volume.)

NOTE! Black powder is extremely corrosive. After you shoot a gun using even a single black powder cartridge, you will need to completely field strip the thing and thoroughly clean it before you put it away. The powder residue will attract moisture molecules in the air and immediately start to rust your gun.
