what is the correct way to measure the barrels of an over and under shotgun without extended choke tubes. do you measure from the end of the barrels to the end near the fireing pins or due you measure from the end of the barrels to the area where the shell ends in the chamber? my shot gun shots 2 3/4" and 3" shells if measures from end to end 28". is it a 28" barrel length or 26"?

28". For any shotgun, put a wooden dowl/ cleaning rod down the barrel, mark it, and measure the length that was in there. Length is muzzle to breach face.
