Supressed 22 vs .177 pellet rifle sound level

I was showing my suppressed Ruger RAR 22lr to a friend yesterday. He seemed skeptical as to whether such things were worthwhile. I loaded the RAR and took a single shot at a stump 100 yards away. He sort of shrugged. Then I pulled out my 1000 fps .177 pellet rifle and fired it.
Surprise!! He freely admitted the pellet rifle was at least 2x and maybe 3x louder than the muffled 22 and it's pellet didn't reach the stump.
