Sometimes comparisons will show newer guns with shorter barrels having similar or better velocity then an older gun with a longer barrel, (Buffalo bore chart.) But generally you need a six inch barrel, at least, for complete powder burn.

For hunting I've always thought a Contender in 357 mag and a 12inch barrel is a totally different gun then revolvers with 6 & 8 inch pipes.
