I shoot a 32", but have no experience with a 30", so I can't tell you the difference. I do like the way the 32" swings though. I went from 26" tubes, on my older Citori.

How tall are you? Are you planning to stick with the Inv+DS chokes? I'm 5'10" and I liked the 30" Sporting. I don't use them for Sporting any longer but still use them for field guns. Try to handle them both. I do think Browning's are heavier out front.

Be sure to let us know what you decide and your results.

I have a 30" I use for sporting clays. It works for me. Add about another inch for the choke tubes.

30 or 32 probably doesn't make too much of a difference for the average guy, which I think I am.

I'm 5'9" with the 30" sporting. I also found it front heavy and my left arm got a little tired. After a while, that heavy feeling causes me to adjust my mount to deal with it.

Last week, I rolled up 20 or so nickels and stuffed it into the butt stock. Now, I honestly cannot feel the weight of the gun. Adding 4oz made it feel 2lbs lighter. And... the recoil is pretty much gone for my 1oz loads.

Something to try.
