Default Ammo comparison question

Christmas morning I awoke to find a new revolver under the tree. My son bought me a S&W 642, .38 spl, snubby. (Ya gotta love a kid like that! I must have raised him right. )

Also under the Yule tree was a box of Federal 110 gr. HydraShok ammo. I've always been a fan of heavier bullets, and have a supply of 147 gr. HydraShok +P.

Can anyone suggest a site for ammo comparison, when fired from a snubby? I've googled till I'm blue in the face with little luck.

Does Federal have ballistics data on their website?

Default ammo

GENERALLY, the lighter weight bullets will be more efficient in the snubbie. Recoil will be more manageable.
