Ruger 10/22 for subsonic ammo in a suppressor

I built my Ruger to shoot subsonic ammo.

I used the lightest recoil spring that came with the Kidd kit.

Ruger 10/22

Magpul Hunter Stock
Kidd Trigger
Tactical Advantage Threaded Barrel
T&J Suppressor
Kidd bolt lever/guiderod/springs
Kidd Extractor

Only factory parts are the receiver and the bolt.

Using Aguila SS, my 10-22 with the factory spring will run most of the time with the 10 round mag but not with a fully loaded 25 rounder--too much drag on the bolt by the rounds in the mag. What I found was that my trigger finger can "outrun" the bolt occasionally. I was on a kick of trying to get 3 bullets on the way before the first hit the 100 yard plate and maybe 50% of the attempts failed because the bolt hadn't fully closed when I triggered the next shot.
I would caution that you NOT use HV ammo with those light springs unless using a good synthetic buffer pin.
