Suppressor Info

Just curious about velocity. I know the new ones don't decrease velocity or effect its accuracy. My question is will it add velocity? The reason I am asking is this, I have a Win 670 with aftermarket 18" barrel. If I were to put a 6" suppressor on the 18" barrel, would I in essence have a functioning 24" barrel to increase its velocity? Or due to the baffeling effect will it only silence the blast and not show any gain in velocity.

    Liltank, now Im no expert but I cant see how it could increase velocity, they displace pressure,gases etc etc.

    However their are more people to reply to this with their opions and experiences.

    The suppressor will theoretically increase speed but only a tiny bit.
    At a guess it might only be 1 -5 fps....

    Mine shoots the same velocity on or off, only the impact changes 1/2" left 1/2" low @ 100yrds. with it on. Very easy to compensate for.

    POI change must be the VLD bullets because factory loaded ammo there is no change in POI

    Got a buddy who's purchasing one and his research indicates that they do increase velocity a bit, but no where near what the same increase in barrel length would be, of course.

    With our M110's we seem to get a slight increase and all have a 1 MOA shift of it's own.
