Try are several Long, CB and Short's that have velocity in the 710fps or less range. Shooting them out of a older long barrel .22 bolt rifle will sound like an airrifle or less. From behind a shooter you mainly here the rifles action clicking not the bang so much. Quite enough for my wife to kill two ratcoons with 2 shots at 10 feet off our porch and one not realizeing what happen till it was also shot. Sounds is way more like a PUTT not a bang. between my wife and myself we killed around 15 ratcoons off our pourch get into the bird feeders. We used CCI .22long from a remington 511 bolt with a 25" barrel .Even our sleeping cats were not alarmed.

Default complicating a simple idea

It'd take some shopping round, look for standard velocity ammo, stear clear of the high velocity ammo, even high velocity shorts will bark out a long gun.

CCI target seconds (CCI Standard Velocity, Item #0032)
are a prime example of accurate std velocity ammo with a good heavy bullet, the variety store here sells them from time to time, they come 200 rounds in a bulk bullet box for a$9 (Alaska $) you will find it takes more Alaska Dollars to purchase a item than regular lower 48 $.
