As far as pattern goes, barrels as short as 18" don't begin to spread double-aught buck until after 10 yards. The faster the load, the larger the spread.

This from Cylinder Bore, Improved, and MOD-choked barrels in my two 870s and one 1100; all 18" barrels.

(I have these shotguns' OG 26" and 28" barrels; the guns are in Texas tactical mode for the time being)
