Nope, no sizing needed at all!
One thing I have found with vintage guns however, is indexing helps, at times we have run into out of round chambers and such, so a slight file mark at 12:00 always gets them into the chamber with no issues!:
The only thing you will have to do is check your chamber, if it is a 2" or 2 1/4" chamber you will have too trim your cases a bit as they are 2 1/2"

Thanks! That is really useful information. I will definitely go for the brass shells now. The thing is that I was not sure about the proper size of chamber according to the shell. I have heard that the brass shells offer a more persistent shot!
