I have been wanting to get/make a subsonic rifle for a while now. I have been reading a few posts about this and need some advice. I was thinking about getting a cheap stevens rifle and rebarrel it to a 1:8 twist. I would then take that to a gun smith and have him cut the barrel to 18 inches and thread it for a can. Is that all I would need to do?

You stole my idea :D

What grain bullet you thinking about using?
9 grains of trailboss fill the case nicely.
i have some 208 Amax i was gonna try, they suppose to be able to expand very good at low velocities.
