I found this on another Forum

Hm, I'm going to bump this sorta old topic to say that I've chronoed some slugs through a Mossberg 500 Serbu. In an 18.5" barrel, standard Remington 1 oz. slugs were doing 1410 fps. Through the Super-Shorty, 1140 fps. That's less than a 20% velocity loss. Reduced recoil was, coincidentally, 1140 fps through the 18.5" and 920 fps through the Serbu, once again less than 20% loss. It wasn't my chrono, though, so I only shot slugs through it.
taken from RyanM on THR forum.

The Super shorty is a 6.5 inch barrel compared to an 18.5 inch barrel.

Unless I am mistaken the slugs would be effected by barrel length more than shot.
Shot placement is everything! I would rather take a round of 50BMG to the foot than a 22short to the base of the skull.

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...
