You made the jump from subs to supers indoors, so you’ve removed a significant factor of noise reduction percentage.
Then you have chosen velocity that robs the bullets of any where from 25-50% of possible stopping power.
Since what stops bullets in the weight and speeds you are suggesting is expansion, the more speed the better. The other option is softer lead, that can be a problem in a semi auto. Hollow points are a possibility, but feeding can be an issue. Not saying it can’t be done, but they also tend to under penetrate even trying to pass through heavy clothing. Cast lead is not the best self defense bullet.
The suggest that light bullets are hard to cycle in an AR is simply ignorant if you are referring to anything over 1200 fps. Bullets under 150 grains and speeds less than 1000 fps is where it starts to get interesting.
145-185 cast bullets stopped being the best choice for self defense about the same time the 38 special fell out of favor. But if that’s what you are comfortable with, use it. Nothing beats confidence, even if it is miss-placed.
