  1. The shorter barrel should make it a little easier to move around with though

  2. Tony L. Jerkes says:

    like to see the same test with say #6 or #71/2

  3. For hunting I would say no. But for defense the shorter barrel would be easier to maneuver in places such as as house.

  4. How would the older one be with slugs?I have a mossberg 500 with a cut down barrel at 24 inches….
