With a good can on a bolt action 22 with any sub sonic ammo you can hear the firing pin hit , generaly no louder than a sling shot or one of those old Red Rider bb guns.
Hell even with stingers in a bolt gun its much quieter than 95% of decient quality air pellet rifles

James,
How loud is my whisper going to be compared to the rimfire? Man I wish they would hurry up with that barrel. I figured I would have the gun together and would be waiting on the ATF to let me have my can. Instead the can is sitting in the safe and I am waiting on kreiger to cut a 7.5 twist .30 cal barrel.

If the can is a decient quality , with sub sonic ammo it shoulden't be any louder than the weaker pellet rifles , I've shot sub sonic 308 through several good cans and the firing pin noise is clearly noticable , the report from the gas leaving the can is not as loud as breaking the quick connect fitting on an air line with a very short hose , kinda like a "pffft". I'm sure that the Whisper woulden't be louder than the sub sonic 308 as long as its sub sonic.

even with full hous 308 ammo through a good can is not as loud as a bolt action 22 long rifle with standard speed ammo , completly safe to shoot without hearing protection.

What model is your 30 can can?

It is a liberty black raven, dont know anything about the quality. I decided that if it was junk I could rebuild parts of it to make it okay. It does use K baffles and the machine work doesnt look bad.
