Considering that the difference between a 28" and 20" barrel with a 150gr bullet in .308, as an example, might be 200fps, what does barrel length have to do with distance?

If you know it's 500 yards, a 200fps difference might be a couple clicks, if you don't know it's 500 yards, the 200fps is not going to help your guess.

The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
