How well do you shoot?

Only difference is the amount of pelletesbetween 20 and 12 and then your muzzle velocity.

!2 will give you more pellets - more chance of hitting something.

But then I use a 28 Ga even less pellets!

Doesn't take much to kill a dove. 20 gauge hi brass are a little over kill, especially on the cheek and shoulder. A 7/8 ths load in the 20 works well as a 1 oz. in the 12. If you need more shot to hit them, I suggest more shot will not work 1/2 as much as a couple rounds at a skeet range.
