how much velocity does a SBS loose?

how much velocity does a SBS (9-10 inch barrel) loose over a normal 18inch shot gun?

I am told that the length of the barrel does not matter (as much) in a shot gun as it does in a rifle, is that true? I know I will be loosing about 1/2 the barrel and in a rifle that would be a lot of velocity.

all 26 of my guns are 45/70 govt, 357 mag, 22 or 12 ga... I believe in keeping it simple. Wish my wife did as well...

that is good to know! If what my friend told me is true then shot should loose even less...

this makes me happy. I am really thinking about getting a SBS for home defense but I would like to try it for hunting as well (not as my primary shot gun that goes to my 870) just for fun.
