Default What little I know about supressors and ballistics.

Do they even make subsonic rounds for the .17 and, if so, why? Why not just use a BB gun? When you lower the velocity of that tiny round, it doesn't have very much going for it. Since you can't hand load for it, it certainly wouldn't be a DIY project.

I'd like to have a .50 SW mag. rifle. Great ole big bullet would give lots of impact and still be quiet at sub-sonic velocity.

I recently fired a suppressed .22 both with high velocity rounds and subsonics. All you could hear with the subsonic rounds was the action cycling. With the high Vel rounds. you got the sonic crack and it was about as loud as an unsuppressed rifle.

Negative on subsonic 17...

Standard velocity CCI is subsonic, and still enough juice to function in semi autos.

Mini mags are definitely quieter suppressed, but you really don't get the full benefit of a suppressor until you move up to a bigger cartridge with more powder.

The suppressor does absolutely nothing to dissipate the sound once a projectile leaves the barrel. For instance, my .308 bolt gun with full power load sounds like a 22lr.
