The only thing I've heard about shorties that might be a problem in hunting dangerous game is reported feeding problems. I have never had any trouble with mine, nor have I met anyone who has. As for terminal performance, if the shot is well-placed, the caliber, velocity and construction of the bullet are what matters - the length and/or shape of the case are non-factors. For example, a bear wouldn't be able to tell the difference between being hit by that 180 gr. bullet whether it came from the long .300 Win. Magnum case or the short .300 WSM case because it would be just as dead, just as fast.
