A longer 6-8" barrel could be shooting the same bullet up to 300 fps faster than a 2-3" barrrel in magnum chamberings. The longer barrel will only add aound 4 oz more weight to help offset the added recoil caused by more velocity. In theory at least a long barrel will have more recoil, but also less muzzle flip. To be honest when actually shooting, I've never felt the difference was enough to notice. If anything the added noise and muzzle flip of a shorter barrel seem more objectionable even though the longer barrel should have more recoil.
