 How loud is subsonic 22 ammo

Do you still need hearing protection with subsonic .22 ammo? I'm looking for something I can put by the door and use to shoot varmints without grabbing for my ear plugs and muffs. I've lost enough of my hearing already.

 How loud is subsonic 22 ammo

When I was 18, I could, and did, get a 22 pistol. Me and my buddies went target shooting three times without ear protection, Each time it took longer for my ears to stop ringing, I am 50 now and still waiting for them to stop after the third time.

Yeah, when I was a teen I went into the desert to shoot my .357 magnum revolver without hearing protection. Once. Very painful and my ears didn't stop ringing for a week. I now suffer some significant mid range hearing loss and I'm fairly sure that dumb stunt is why.

 How loud is subsonic 22 ammo

I use CB caps made by CCI I believe and they are very quiet is a long barrel bolt action. Slightly louder than a pellet gun. In my carbine auto, they won't cycle and are a little louder and in a pistol even louder but not in the ear damaging range IMHO.

Thanks Denwood. That's what I wanted to hear. My pellet gun doesn't have quite enough pop and the .22 bolt action Remington I inherited is in another state so I couldn't try it out.

 How loud is subsonic 22 ammo

Sub-sonic is different than CB caps. CB's are pretty quiet and are powered by just the primer. Sub-sonics are loaded with powder but are designed to stay under the speed of sound and therefore can, and will, produce some potential hearing damage, but certainly at a lesser level and not as quickly as full power ammo.

CB's should not be used in long barrels(over 20 inches) as they can stick in the bore. I wrecked the barrel on a pre-war Mauser sporter in just that fashion.

I'll tell you what I have sitting next to my back door. It is a Benjamin pump in .22(NOT .177)caliber. I have cleanly dispatched a bunch of varmints.... probably 150-200 or more ... with that rifle.

It is astonishingly accurate. I am talking one hole groups at 50 feet from a rest with iron sights, and unlike a spring loaded pellet shooter, it can use standard rifle scopes without damaging them. Plus it have enough power, with 8 pumps, to take down critters the size of jackrabbits.

And... I guarantee it will not hurt your ears.

My pellet rifle is CO2 powered and doesn't seem to have much power. Plus the stupid CO2 cartridge is always empty when I need it most. How does your Benjamin compare to CB caps in terms of power? I sure like the idea of not messing with pumping or CO2 cartridges but CB caps don't sound like they'd have all that much power.

I recognize full well and with full acuity, I can not believe what I'm reading!!!

As a pilot with over 10,000 hours of flight time and been assigned to more Artillery units than the Patron Saint!!

Your hearing is subject to prolonged frequency damage, not from short term loud sharp noises!!

note: if you disagree most people would be deaf if they ever experienced a thunderstorm!!

Rant over: Shoot and be happy, if your really concerned !! Lower the volume on your head phones or your car radio!!

Get Aquila sniper sub sonic ammo from the Cheaper than dirt web site. Y ou may also consider purchasing a suppressed gun. I use a ruger 10/22 supressed and it is totally silent. Cost around $800.00 for a real good one, less for a used one. Try Guns America.com.
