It's been a long time since I carried a snubby from my law enforcement days, but my ammunition choices at the time were more limited compared to today. Before we transitioned to self-loaders I had to carry a revolver and I normally carried off-duty a Colt Cobra with 125 grain JHP...usually Winchester or Federal. I sometimes carried a Python snubby and in that I carried "Treasury Loads"...Winchester .38 Special 110 grain JHP +P+ which were law enforcement only. That Python really loved that round. I still have a few boxes of it.

Today I would look seriously at the loadings that were optimized for short barrel use.
