The Speer GDHP Short Barrel ammo performs well.
But does so, in part, by way of a very aggressive, large, deep HP.
From a revolver this means nothing.
Feeding though a auto loader,
much like their famous Speer 200 gr Flying Ashtray of old,
can be an issue with some guns.
My MK40 choked on the the 180 gr Short Barrel after a 200 round break in.
It may feed now I'm at 500+ rounds.
They are expensive and I never went back to check.
Speer GDHP 155 gr feed fine and have been chronoed at ~1150 fps from a 3.0" MK40.
Plus I can get regular Speer LE GDHP Duty 155 gr in boxes of 50.
So that's what I run in my gun.
Moral to this story is make sure your gun will reliably feed those

My favorite .45 round is the Winchester Ranger T 230 gr.
That's what's currently loaded in my SIG P220.
And my current EDC Glock 27 is loaded with
125 gr Sig 357 Ranger Ts as well.
