I guess what the OP is saying is that using the lighter bullets in shorter barrels to get decent velocities. The other train of thought is that the heavier for caliber loads usually lose less velocity in percentage compared to the lighter loads.

My personal experience is that the light and fast rounds cause a lot more recoil and muzzle blast (flash) and are very loud in shorter barrel weapons, while in longer barrels it doesn't make as much of a difference.
