I'm interested in a .22lr for controlling the rabbits on my land. With large magazines and semi auto fire, the Bradley Arms .22 AR / Lantac type rifles look good, but having never heard one in action, how much louder due to the automatic loading action is one when compared to say a Ruger 10/22 with the rotary magazine or just a plain bolt action.
For target shooting at my local club, the extra noise isn't an issue but hunting rabbits at night it could be.
Which ever I get, it would be moderated, my .17hmr shooting supersonic ammo has a real loud "crack" which sends them running for cover, a quiet .22 doesn't startle them as much.
Any advice would be gratefully received.
