What's your favorite 38 special load for a 2" J-frame?

Whinchester silver tip +p. It's strange, I have access to many "better" loads, but I like this one the best.

110grain frangible for the 2" J frame :D

Any concern about penetration (or lack thereof) in the frangables?

38/357 J frame loads:
Defense/carry: Remington 357 125gr sjhp
Support side/backup: Remington 38 148gr targetmaster wc
Fun (IMO): Fiocchi 357 142gr fmjtc
Fun Reloads: 357 case, 125 gr cast tc or fmjtc, 5.0 gr Winchester 231, Win magnum small primers (cast does do some fouling, I'm guessing that its near or over the 900 fps cast threshold and would be a +P 38 load).
