Porting a 22 barrel

Got to thinking... Yea it could be dangerous haha..
Tryin to figure out a way to get cheap high velocity ammo to go subsonic out of a 16.25" barrel.

Then i remembered that the mp5-sd barrel is ported to release pressure to slow the round down.

I have a extra barrel that i can chop down to 16.25 and do some testing. Thought bout startin by drilling 1/16" holes down the top of the barrel, testing with a chrono after each to see how much it helped.

Think it will work? Wonder if the ports will clog up over time?

Being lead and wax coated bullets...... yes, they will clog the ports quickly. But I am no expert.................

How many inches of barrel stick into the can?

IMO..... unless you can get the gasses in the can, it is going to be loud.
