From various ads: Short barrel has a low flash powder designed to give better velocity out of short barrels. As Darrell said, faster burning powder. It also has a different jacket so it will expand better at lower velocities.

Assuming you are shooting .38s....I have some Speer GD short barrel ammo but haven't tried them yet. I have tried some Hornady CD in my LCR and they were blinding bright at night along with standard practice ammo.
