I think the Speer Gold Dot 135 gr +P loads for short barrels is the gold standard for snubbies that can handle +P loads. My second choice is the Remington 158 gr. +P LSWCHP. As another poster noted, it has softer lead than some of the other similar loadings. I would think the Buffalo Bore lead loads would perform well.

However, I personally would not use any of BB's jacketed hollow point or semi-jacketed hollow points without confirmation about the type of bullet they are using. In the past they have switched from Speer Gold Dots (great) to Speer uni-core bonded (not GDs but okay) to Montana Gold bonded hollow points (not so good). I know they are at the mercy of the market in what bullets they can use, but the bullet makes a big difference in terminal ballistics.
