    The above loads are good choices.

    The Barnes Bullets all-copper expanding .38 spcl 110 Tac XPD bullet is specifically designed to open from 2” barrels. Typically the bullet will start opening around 700 FPS. Most 2” revolvers shoot a .38 spcl (even +P) at about 750-900 fps.

    Buffalo Bore and Double Tap are two of the loaders using this bullet.
