I've been told It will affect accuracy at range but within 100 yards (.223) you should be fine and if your shooting subsonic that's about all you would be doing anyway. It's really only the first shot that is affected all that much and that's just because it's punching threw the oil can. From what I've seen it doesn't do much to the accuracy.
I wouldn't recommend shooting it wet just because the martial in the filter will absorb the water and I have no idea what that would do besides make it heavy. We actually have never tested that.
The life of the filter depends on what you are shooting out of it. With a .22lr you can shoot it all day. With a .223 you might get a hundred shots out of it but It's made and sold to be used with a .22lr. Having said that we beat the heck out of them. We have put on on an RPD before. it only survived one belt of 7.62 but it worked good. We also run them on our full auto guns but I don't recommend it. We just do it because we can and we get bored at the range.
