The supersonic crack is nowhere near as loud as the muzzle blast. Also, the amount of crack you hear varries greatly with the distance. A good example is a 22 rifle. Because of the relatively mild muzzle blast, you can hear the crack easily. Barrel length has a greater effect on muzzle blast than velocity does.
