Barrel length really boils down to user preference. Many people like shorter barrels saying that they handle better and are easier to deal with in bushy terrain. Other like longer barrels thinking they'll get more velocity and therefore more power. I've always been of the mind that if I'm buying a gun that is chambered for an over-bored cartridge I'll go with a longer barrel (24"-26") to try and take advantage of the extra powder. If I'm buying a gun that is not chambered for an over-bored cartridge I'll go with a barrel length that best matches what I'll be using that rifle for.
