Thinking of SBR-ing a 10/22 for subsonic work

Coming from an 8-10 inch barrel, is there any reason to go with the 1-9 twist and 60gr sub ammo, or will any sub ammo be subsonic and therefore better from a 1-16twist?

Just go with any ammo under 1000 fps, out of 8-10 inch barrel won't hit that speed anyway, and if your sbring, dont forget tax stamp before build, 1: 16 barrel by the way

What about a 10/22 charger and add a brace? You could skip the tax stamp.

My thoughts exactly, unless you're on a strict budget that won't allow the cost of a Charger.

We have a double tax stamp 10/22 (short barrel and suppressor) with a 1 in 16 twist, and it works fine with any normal bullet weight sub sonic ammo, with or without the suppressor installed. Definitely no need to think about setting up for 60 grainers.

We also have a special barreled (1 in 9 twist) 10/22 built for the 60 grainers too. No need to go to that trouble or expense unless you really want to play with 60 grain bullets.

Keep in mind some suppressor manufacturers specifically recommend against the use of 60 grain ammo (Aguila SSS) in their suppressors as it poses a baffle strike risk. I'm pretty sure I read this in my Silencerco manual for the SpectreII, but can't find it on their website now. Probably for the 1 in 16" twist barrels as it wont stabilize the longer bullet.

Looks like Silencerco has dropped all of the SWR products out of their lineup including the SpectreII ,warlock and Specwar rifle cans. Cant even find the manuals online now.

As to the OP's question, just stick with standard velocity 40-45 grain ammo under 1100 FPS as it suppresses very well, depending on your density altitude. I'll get a hot round that will break the sound barrier every few boxes, but that's the joy of bulk ammo quality.
