Is there any logical "best way" to set the burst length?

I've always just set everything to "long burst" at every distance thinking the extra damage was worth an occasional jam but now I'm not sure. I've missed some really good shots because of jams but I've also done more damage than I thought I should have because of the burst length.


There's no perfect answer to this question as there are many variables which could move the needle one way or the other on this.

For example, if your team outnumbers the other side significantly, then using a long burst is a more viable option, as even if you're out of the fight with a jam, your pals can hopefully cover you - and the extra damage you might get in could cripple the enemy plane, so he can be finished off more easily.

If you're out of fuel and gliding near your own edge, you may not have the chance to get off more than a single shot before you leave, so a long burst could do a bit more damage to a foe making them more vulnerable to your team mates still in play.
