Kswiss,

Good question.

According to Speer - the "short barrel" ammo has powder blended for a different pressure curve, intended for subcompact guns, and the projectile has been tweaked to expand the same as the regular Gold Dot at lower velocity.

You are suppose to obtain the same results whether you are using your G26 or your G17.

I have never done my own tests to confirm this but that's as much as I know. Perhaps someone else can fill in the blanks here.
