The Sound Barrier is 1125 FPS at Sea Level
Subsonic Ammunition Doesn't Break The Sound Barrier, Thus No Sonic Boom.
Reduced Noise, Less Recoil, Better Suppression and Less Concussive.
Subsonic rounds have limitations in terms of range, penetration power, and kinetic energy compared to their supersonic counterparts however new ballistic breakthroughs are making it more accurate and quieter than ever!
Reduced Noise - Less Concussive
Subsonic rounds travel at speeds below the sound barrier, reducing the noise produced when fired. This is particularly beneficial for maintaining stealth and minimizing noise pollution, making them ideal
for certain tactical situations or in environments where noise control
Less Recoil - More Accurate
Lower velocities mean reduced recoil. This can improve accuracy by
allowing for quicker follow-up shots and better control over the
Subsonic rounds can work well with suppressors (silencers), as the lower velocity reduces the sonic crack associated with supersonic bullets,
making the firearm even quieter.
