Default Re: Ammo at Cabelas

I tried the Winchesters for "loudness", and 1) They are definitely supersonic at my place, and 2) They are about 20 dB louder than the Aguila SSSs. Most of the extra loudness is due to the supersonic 'crack'. I know this because I measured them in reference to the SSS, AND because the operation of the action is right about 50 dB (relative). The 10/22 action is louder than the SSS. Therefore, the additional loudness of the Winchester has to be mostly due to the 'crack'.

I didn't shoot at targets so I don't have any precision info at the moment. I also didn't shoot over a chrono, so no velocity data either. That will come sometime this week.
