Hunting with subsonic ammunition is a rewarding challenge for the seasoned hunter. Due to its lower velocity, subsonic ammunition generally does not possess typical energy levels seen with common hunting cartridges such as the 30-06. Also, because of its lower velocity, range is limited to under 100M due to the significant drop exhibited by subsonic projectiles past this range. However, if you are an experienced hunter looking to take small to medium sized game or predators, subsonic ammunition has many advantages.
