Generally speaking, what gives better performance in a 22 rifle?

1. A subsonic round in a standard 22 rifle

or

2. A regular long rifle round in a silenced rifle?

I am looking for short range, less than 50 yards, critter control.

How are you defining better performance?

.22's are all pretty weak so shot placement is key.

The sub sonics will be quieter through a suppressor. For less then 50 yard critter control my choice would be a sub sonic round through a suppressed rifle. I've used that combination on rabbits and it works very well. Usually can pop one in the head while his buddies just look at him flopping around on the ground, then you bust them too.

Sorry ,

I meant to ask if the subsonics through a silencer are that quieter than without a silencer? I am trying to decide if it's worth it to get a silencer or just use the subsonic rounds.

Subsonic rounds out of a normal rifle are quite loud. They mainly gain their advantage from suppressed rifles because they stay subsonic and have no sonic crack.
