Nice post Webley. Checking all of those stats out, I think I may give the CorBon 125gr DPX a try, see how it compares to the 110 gr.
From a short barrel, loadings with heavy bullets are actually the most efficient. This is because it takes more pressure to push a heavier bullet out of the case than a light one and thus a greater percentage of the powder is burned inside the case rather than in the barrel. This also means that, with a short barrel, a smaller percentage of the powder burns after the bullet has already left the barrel and thus velocity "loss" is typically less. So long as the recoil doesn't bother you, I'd recommend the 140gr JHP loading if you want to use Cor-Bon in a short barrel.
