Hello. I generally go with barrels of at least 4" or greater, but here are some average velocities based on 10 shots fired about 10' from the chronograph screens:

Glock 26 w/3.46" bbl:

Corbon 115-gr. +P DPX: 1181 ft/sec

Winchester 127-gr. +P+: 1246 ft/sec

Corbon 125-gr. +P: 1188 ft/sec

SIG-Sauer P225 w/3.86" bbl:

Remington 115-gr. JHP +P: 1198 ft/sec

Corbon 115-gr. DPX +P: 1163 ft/sec

Corbon 115-gr. JHP +P: 1337 ft/sec

Remington 124-gr. Golden Saber +P: 1109 ft/sec

Winchester 127-gr. +P+: 1215 ft/sec

Remington 147-gr. Golden Saber: 942 ft/sec

Speer 147-gr. Gold Dot: 939 ft/sec

Of these loads, I'd go with Winchester 127-gr. +P+ followed by Corbon 115-gr. DPX +P. Though I don't have figures listed for these particular barrel lengths, I think that the Speer 124-gr. +P would also be a good choice. If going with a 147-gr, I'd probably go Winchester Ranger, Golden Saber, and then the Gold Dot.
