The advantage to handloading ammunition is to match powder to barrel length, more or less.

Some powders, such as Bullseye, Winchester 231, and Hodgdon's HP-38 deliver pretty respectable velocities fired from the cylinder, no barrel.

Very fast burning powders work well with short barrels, while the slow burning powders work their best with barrels running in excess of 4".
