Buffalo Bore .357 Magnum short barrel ammo

They make a special version just for short barrels, aimed at the snub nose self defense market. Have any of you tried it out and what have been your thoughts on it?

I use the DPX variety of BB 'low recoil low flash' ammo in my 640-1.

Works very well and I can shoot the gun one handed and still control it.

My experience has been that the BB short barrel ammo is extremely accurate out of a 2 inch Taurus and a 3 inch SP101. It is what I used to carry when I carried a snub.
I'd rather have it and not need it then need it and not have it.
