The old Churchill gunmakers of England did extensive tests many years ago.
They concluded that 25 inch barrels on a traditional SxS game gun gave full velocity, good patterns, enough forward moment of inertia for a smooth swing, and with their tapered rib, as good alignment on the target as longer barrels.
They sold a lot of Model XXVs on that basis.
