Default Suppressing a 243

Has anyone on here ever suppressed a 243? If you did was it worth your time?

Is there any ballistic disadvantage to a suppressor?

I did and yes it was worth it. Suppressors do not change the ballistics other than the sound.

Buy a big enough suppressor to swap to other rifles. Buy a suppressor never look back.
