I live in an apartment, so not huge.
So ballistics are less of an issue, the actual load is the question. Fragmentation is determined by the load and target, not the barrel length in most cases.
Both are factors in fragmentation, and both are factors I've previously mentioned.
You'll see in this video that I posted earlier that the penetration is deeper in the 11.5" barrel but the expansion is slightly less. The differences are negligible at best from a soft point. If those differences mean that much then it may not be the best option.....know your background. In that case #8 birdshot may be the answer.
It depends on the elbow room you have between houses and apartments. If a bullet penetrates your apartment wall and wounds or kills somebody you have some problems. Use what you want but be mindful of where your shots would possibly harm members of your family of the neighbors in an apartment building.
