Subsonics in Ruger 77/44

Any suggestion where to start with fast Norma R1 - or similar powder - behind 300 gr JHP for the ~1000fps? Suppressed rifle under construction.
Would 44 special data (Lee -96) have the bullet lodged half-way out in a rifle? Velocity-difference between handgun and rifle - still subsonic in a 22" barrel when V0 is 752 fps in the handgun, barrel unknown, lets say 6"?

The old Hornady reloading manual I have lists 44 mag loads for rifle down to 900 fps with a 240 gr. See if you can find a copy of a newer one for 300 gr loads.
Never try to educate someone who resists knowledge at all costs.
But what do I know?
