I have not seen anything consistent, in an AR I have noticed increased back pressure, which you would expect, but not corresponding velocity increases.

My rifles speed up. You always gain a bit of freebore boost with a can similar to that you get from running a brake.

Yes, and impact shift. I had my 6.5 sighted in and put suppresor on and it was 1 inch right and 2 inches low, but you get more distance when shooting. Love shooting with a suppresor.
