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.

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.
