It actually isn't just a matter of pressure as some common standard calibers excede the pressures of the short mags as can be seen in the SAAMI chart...case head thrust being the predominate issue.

From everything I've read on the developement of the short mags, the reason they exist is so they can be chambered in short actions which are stiffer and more accurate than long actions, an issue that is a moot point in a Handi.

Or better yet, buy a light one and if it kicks ya too much, even after adding a "good" recoil pad, add some weight or a mercury recoil reducer to the stock, easily done in a Handi!!! :)
