Thta pretty much sums it up. I agree with whats been said and have guns in all three chamberings. Neither of them is really all that quiet, but the 22 long rifle would be the less noisy of the three. In an urban setting the 22 LR would most likely draw the least amount of attention as the buildings would muffle the sound a bit and the back ground noise would sorta cover the "crack" of the muzzle blast. Out in the country the sound can carry a good ways on a windless night. The 223 is considerably louder than either of the 2 rim fire rounds and is too loud to pass as a fire cracker from a wayward teen playing aroundA .22lr and .22 Magnum are not tactical rounds, so it isn't fair to compare them with a .223
The best round for 150 yards would be a .223, the other two rounds could reach that far but I wouldn't call that practical or humane for larger animales.
.22lrwhat are the tactical differences of the following rounds: .22lr, .22 magnum, and .223? (if they were shot from comparable rifles)only one's a centerfire. I'd require a primer for combat
which is more practical for targets at 150 yards?>223
which would be produce a quieter sound?
