Hornaday 175 Grain Subsonic bullets work!

I loaded them in new Starline brass with 10.8 grains of Trail Boss. A nice quiet POP with no sonic crack. Hit 4" low at 100 years but I doubt I would ever shoot past 50 with them.
They are designed to expand at subsonic speeds for those needing to remain quieter in their neighborhoods.
.308Win? If so I might have to suggest this to a friend who has an annoying M1A Socom II "short and loud". Being short barred the silly thing don't need all that full charge of powder. Since it ain't going the distance CQB at best.
That load will not function a seni-auto. I have a Ruger American with Bushwhacker 46 supressor. You do hear a slight POP like an air-rifle but no sonic CRACK is created by the bullet. It is a .308Win.
Regular or light year? Either way that is a looooong way.🙃
Yeah, I was gonna ask...
What muzzle velocity are you getting to keep your pill in flight for a hundred years.😜
It was going so fast the sonic boom did not have time to form on this planet. 😀
I guess I could edit the post but that seems to take the fun out of it.
