… I wish I had a 500NE…
And one more for good measure!
uhg uh, still upset about the first one
.22-250 is quieter and less recoil than the .223 Rem? I think he hasn’t fired a .22-250. ;-). Not much recoil with either, but the .22-250 is ear-splitting and quite a bit faster with the same bullets.
Yeah I really didn’t know where he was going with that one.
It’s all in good fun!
So according to that video, I guess I’m an ordinary, paranoid, trench-coated hooligan, who also needs to grow up and decide on a rifle caliber for my pistol caliber AR…
5.56 + 300 + 7.62x39 + 9mm
Gosh am I conflicted
Me too Brother!
I, apparently, am Eric from Iraqveteran8888…?
I never did myspace!
Only one I do not own is the 22-250
Must mean I am the LAND PIRATE CAPTAIN!!!
I love the Instructor bit!!!
22-250 quieter than .223/5.56? 308=My Space? What a loser, as a comedian he is like the 45GAP a epic fail. Thankfully.
Very funny, but some truth to it !
@Ridgewalker (et al)
I know .223 is loud, but have always figured that the .22-250 would be even louder. I have actually heard .223’s fired near me, but I don’t think I have ever heard a .22-250 fired near me. So, what is the truth - which is louder (no guesses, please). Thanks.
Not definitive, just musings. The capacities are markedly different:
.223 Rem: 31.4 grains
.22-250 Remington (W-W): 44.6 grains
Didn’t find the 22-250 db measurement, but these are surprising to me:
Winchester Model 70 (w/BOSS) 7mm Magnum 166.5 db

Savage Model 110 (22” barrel) .30-06 163 db
Remington 742 carbine (18” barrel) .30-06 162.6 db
Steyer-Daimler Mannlicher .270 161.9 db
Remington 742 std (22” barrel) .30-06 161.6 db
Browning X-Bolt .30-06 161.4 db
Rossi Trifecta .243 160.6 db
Winchester 94 .30-30 160.5 db
Ruger Model 1 .45-70 160.1 db
Thompson/Center Encore .50 (black powder) 159.7 db
Winchester 70 XTR 7mm Mauser 159.2 db
M14 7.62 X 51mm (.308) 159.0 db

Ruger 10/22 .22LR 143.4 db
Mossberg 702 .22LR 143.0 db
Marlin Model 60 .22LR 141 db
Thanks for the info. Don’t know why, but every source I see / get for how loud guns/ammo are/is, differs. I do have issue with anyone saying .22LR is in the 140’s, but it might be the noise impulse is just too quick for me to detect it. Let me see what I have and get back to you (all).
Here is a chart that does support what you had (though, I have always thought it a bit high):
Here’s another chart:
The problem with this second chart is that it shows the .357 magnum as being louder than not only the .223 (no way that’s true!), but also louder than the .30-06 (again, no way). And even more crazy, it shows the .38 special being as loud as the .30-06. Uh, no.
So, not sure why these charts are so wacky, but I have learned not to trust them.
My “new” rifle started its’ life as a 30.06 and is now 7.62 NATO
