8.6 BLK Subsonic | Episode 68: Faxon Blog & Podcast
David Stark of Discreet Ballistics joins the show to talk about all things 8.6 Blackout and Subsonic Ammunition.
Shooting subsonic ammunition is significantly quieter than shooting supersonic ammunition. Simple fluid dynamics tells us that if a projectile travels at a velocity below the speed of sound, the sonic crack normally heard with supersonic projectiles will not be present. When used in combination with a sound suppressor, subsonic ammunition significantly reduces a firearm's sound signature to hearing-safe levels. Subsonic ammunition has become increasingly popular with today's civilian, law enforcement and military shooters.
