only difference is the weight, which affects the swing. some people say 28" swings better because it has a little more momentum. I think its a negligible difference, personally. My dove gun is a 26" barreled Remington 1100, my quail gun is a 28" sxs. I think I shoot both about equally well. If anything, I would switch the two around since I think the longer barrel might nominally help on passing birds (doves) while the shorter might be better for point shooting quail in tight cover. But still, I don't think it matters enough to change anything.

I have no idea the correlation of barrel length to height. Never heard of that before.
The swing is the thing.....and with passing birds (and skeet) a longer barrel will work better for most folks. Your 1100, with a 26" barrel, should be about the same overall length as your SxS with a 28" barrel.
