    Ammo

    Has anyone tried that 308 Winchester subsonic ammo? I just recently seen it advertised in a nra magazine. No idea how long it’s been around. I was wondering how quiet it is with a can.

    I load my own subsonic ammo but it should be pretty quiet from a bolt action depending on your can. A semi auto will be a lot louder due to noise from the ejection port.

    I think I’ll try a box when available in my area. I plan to load my own also, soon as time permits an I get ahold of some subsonic load data.

    Depending on cartridge I have found subsonic load data ranges from scarce to nonexistent. I wound up buying Quickload to help working up loads and have found it almost essential for some cartridges.
