    Probably not.


    Author Jay Langston did some research on barrel length and shot velocity. He found that every inch of barrel length below 28 inches will cost < 1% of your velocity. Even if you went from the extremes (say 28 to 22-inch barrels) it would probably still not have a significant affect on your 40 – 60 yard trajectory.
