Default Suppressor on a 17HMR

Would it be worthwhile to have the barrel threaded on my .17 so that my Sparrow will go on it?
Or does the supersonic bullet make it ineffective?
I know a couple of you guys will have an answer for me.

Watched some YouTube videos and I cannot tell the difference suppressed or not.

Unless you shoot subsonic rounds you will still hear the crack. But, not the "BOOM".

Default I recently shot a .22 rimfire with a supressor.

With sub-sonic loads it was QUIET. With high velocity rounds, it was as loud as an un-suppressed rifle.

I'd like to have a .500 cal rifle with suppressor. Loading a 400 gr bullet to barely sub-sonic it would be a thumper that wasn't loud.

What the heck, I'm old and poor and don't hunt. No rifles for me.

Don't think they make subsonic ammo for the .17hmr., if they do, I've never seen or heard about it.

So I'd think you'd be wasting your money. But the cool factor will certainly be there. Maybe a faux suppressor?

All it will do is make it hearing safe. You will still get the crack from breaking the sound barrier, but it'll be much more pleasant to shoot.

Already have the suppressor for my 10/22
Sparrow
It will work for the .17 as well.

Who do you guys recommend to thread the barrel?

With the exception of my carry guns, I have zero desire to shoot anything unsuppressed ever again.

Get it threaded and shoot it.

Splittine will do it with a pipe threader for a 30 pack of Natty.
