    have shot a walther p22 in my backyard before, quiet enough, etc. 16" barrel on 10/22 suppressed......quickly figured out it ain't near quiet enough to pull this off.. Ok subsonic ammo, what else guys...this thing is not near what I was expecting...I know ammo is going supersonic, but how do you all get yours to shhhhhhhh? gemtech outback on 10/22. thanks. maybe just a little quieter than not suppressed and that is good as it gets?

    Most of the noise from a 22 rifle shooting normal 22LR ammo is sonic crack. You've still got that even with the can installed. Use subsonic ammo and it'll be quieter than the p22. Also, a polymer bolt buffer will quiet much of the remaining 10/22 action noise.

    It will stay subsonic in a 16"

    Bulk pack only stays subsonic in barrels shorter than about 4.5 inches. It doesn't stay in the short barrel long enough to get up to supersonic velocity. Beyond 5-6 inches in a barrel and it will (at least should) go supersonic.

    Oh yea..... Supersonic.. Get some different ammo

    I wouldn't / don't . It's pretty heavy for a 1/16 twist.

    I've shot Aguila SSS in my Buckmark with a Pilot. It wasn't any quieter than CCI standard velocity and accuracy wasn't on par. The empty brass made a very cool looking spiral smoke contrail as it ejected though. :)

    The problem with the SS is that you need a really agressive twist in your barrel to get that round to stabilize 100% of the time. If you run a standard .22 barrel, the chance that one of those little dudes will eventually come out with some yaw is pretty good (and then you'll get a baffel strike).
