Short Barrel .45 ACP?

Just got thru breaking in a new Kahr KP45, it has the 3.54" barrel. Any suggestions for a defensive ammo for this short barrel.

So far it has been very reliable/accurate thru about 400 rounds of 230 gr CCI Blazer.

I have ordered the new 160 gr DPX from Corbon, but they say a month before they are available. I need something to shoot 'til then. Leaning to Remington Gold Saber 185gr.

How much velocity loss should be expected from a 5" barrel that most manufacturers test ammo.

When I had an Officers model it liked 230 grain stuff best. The lighter stuff had slower burning powder loads that did not get the most out of the short barrel.
