16% faster in rifle
The rifle has a 20 inch barrel, correct?

That's only a 16% gain with a barrel of more than 3 1/2 times the length. I'd be willing to bet that there is a length somewhere in between that would match or exceed the velocity produced by the rifle. My guess is right around 15 inches.
