To really silence a firearm effectively, you’ll want to shoot subsonic ammo. The sonic boom — the actual “crack” sound made by the supersonic projectile — is really quite loud. On the downside, limiting bullet speed to under about 1,100 fps means putting a hard cap on muzzle energy for a given bullet weight. AWC is now making a bolt action, integrally suppressed rifle chambered for .44 Magnum (built on a Ruger 77/44). 340-grain subsonics? Sure beats the ft-lbs of most of the common alternatives. AWC also does integrally-suppressed 10/22s (including takedowns), 77/22s, PWS Summits, Ruger MKIIIs, and Browning Buckmarks. Booth tour above, photos follow. . .
