i also experience this with my .22lr, and even my .308 so that’s not really new, when you put a supressor/silencer/moderator (since i dont know how to call this ^^ ) there is a small increase of the bullet velocity… not a lot, and its even less with bigger calibers, but you hvae to take this in concideration if you’re shooting with and without it without re-zeroing your scope ;) 

when i was searching for similar experiences, i’ve seen this video, which is pretty intresting… of course its firearms, but the effect of the supressor is the same than on an air rifle ;) 

Edit : Woops, i didnt saw that you got LOWER velocities with the supressor… well i cant help you this time ^^
