    It’s known as “freebore boost” and will tend to vary directly with supprersor temperature. In general it occurs because the suppressor keeps the propellant gasses somewhat contained for those several inches past the muzzle of the barrel, enabling them to continue to accelerate the bullet.

    I have not noticed much difference in velocity, but do with accuracy.
