Go ahead and enjoy shooting them IF they will feed reliably,that would be only issue-they can't hurt your gun in any way. The length refers to fired shell casing length-not unfired.

Is the box marked 2 1/2 inch shells? Or are you measuring the length of the shell. I think they used to make them, but I have never seen them.
