Silencer on a skinny factory barrel rifle

Does installing a can on a skinny barrel rifle impact the accuracy of that rifle? I have read that the POI can be altered, which is no big deal. The barrel harmonics are the biggest concern. If the weight of the can plus the "leverage" on the tip of the barrel changes harmonics, then it would become a project to find another load that produces acceptable accuracy?

If anybody has any experience with this, please weigh in. I have a CZ American in .222 Reminton that has been a booger to get figured out, but it seems that the problems have been ironed out. I am looking at a YHM 3200, to quiet the muzzle blast for prairie poodle popping.
