This ammunition intentionally does not cycle the actions in semi automatic rifles, for the ultimate in quiet shooting.  Each round must be manually ejected.

So why would anyone want to shoot subsonic loads in their non-suppressed rifle? Turns out there are several reasons that can fit the needs of a couple niches of the market.
One reason is decreased noise. For folks practicing in populated areas or with picky neighbors, subsonic offers a less noisy experience. Ear pro is still necessary; without a suppressor, it’s not that quiet, just less noisy.

Another reason is decreased recoil. Subsonic loads literally eliminated it. The difference was so extreme as to inspire a “wait, what?” followed by amused laughter. The no-recoil experience would be great for folks who want to practice marksmanship while recovering from a clavicle or shoulder injury.  It’s also a confidence booster for his young children and eliminates the need to pack a rimfire rifle and ammo along when she goes with him to the range. Children can have the experience of shooting “daddy’s gun,” sans the discouraging, and with a scope potentially injurious, recoil.

Less heat is generated by subsonic firing, which over time should mean less wear and tear on parts. At the same time, there didn’t seem to be excess carbon buildup in either rifle as a result of using these loads.

    Very, very, and I mean very quiet for a 308 rd. I am amazed how quiet these are in my suppressed Ruger scout rifle. I will be buy more. Accuracy was very nice and so was the speed of shipping.

    Ran 5 boxes with my AR-10 with a 18″ barrel with Surefire 762k with no issues. They are super quiet but I wish they would cycle.

    I shoot these bullets in my rem 700 sps tactical with a yankee hill suppressor and they are far quieter than a semi-auto 300 blackout with the same suppressor and every bit as quiet as the bolt action 300 blackout. Grouping is great but as with all subsonic amunition effective range is severely cut down. All in all this is a great bullet and I will be purchasing more in the near future.

    I was very surprised by the quality of this ammunition. I shoot these out of my Remington 700 with AAC Cyclone.
