You don't want anything that is +P or +P+.

If you can find ammo that has the velocity printed on the box, go for 158-gr. lead bullets and a velocity of around 800 to 850 feet per second.

That is the classic .38 Special load and is undoubtedly what your Grandfather would have been issued as a police officer.
