The typical 22lr has used it energy up in approximately 16.5" of barrel. Longer barrels will start decreasing velocity. There is nothing there to brake.
The steel recoil pin really needs to be changed on all of the 10-22's. Recoil will eventually elongate the holes for the pin. Especially if you are shooting a lot of hyper velocity like stingers.
