The old addage of longer barrels shooting harder is a bunch of baloney. There may be a SLIGHT increase in velocity with a longer barrel, but it is insignificant for all practical purposes. The main benefit of longer barrels is added weight on the front end of the gun to make for a smoother swing and less chance of stopping your swing on a moving target. A longer barrel also gives a longer sighting plane, although that is not nearly as important as some people think.

With the Remington Light Contour barrels on the 11-87, I would choose the 28" barrel.
