Brian is right about rifle cartridges being shot out of pistol-length barrels. I was once shooting next to a guy and he was shooting a 300 win mag rifle. It was loud. Then he started shooting something else that was quite a bit louder. I figured it was a big magnum rifle, like a 375 or a 416 or something... no, it was a TC (contender, encore, not sure which) with about a 10 inch barrel. I asked him what he was shooting out of the TC, and he says "243"... I just could not believe how loud a 243 out of a 10 inch barrel was... I do not know if it was ported, but given the decibels, it probably was.
