Short neck cartridge question Gibbs

Are there any real problems w/ cartridges that have a short neck ?

I looked up the Rocky Gibbs cartridges over at steves pages and see that most of them have less than caliber length necks- i believe the 25 gibbs has a .224 neck length.

My 7mm wsm has a short neck and it's accurate -is the concern in the bullet possibly being knocked out of alignment ?

From what I've seen and heard it doesn't make much difference.

I just don't like the "looks" of the short necks but it didn't make any difference in performance.
