What do I use to seal the Primer Pocket during reloading?
When I actually use a sealer I just use an inexpensive brand of fingernail polish.
Be sure it's pink. Pink works best by far.
Why are you going to seal them?
George & Roy's Primer Sealant
And it is a local product.
Yea thats new to me as well? Why seal it?
I use Roy's, but am told by friends they use nail polish or acrylic sealant.
To answer "Why?", to bar any moisture problems.
Testors Lacquer clear coat. George & Roy’s is nothing more then overpriced finger nail polish.
Nail polish, but not to seal the primers as I can't imagine a situation where I would find myself in such conditions that my sporting ammo would need this.
I use it to mark my loads. Different colors to indicate different things.
Lacquer is what the military has used since the advent of metallic cartridges. Put a drop (with a toothpick) on the primer joint and then wipe off the excess before it dries and a drop between the seated bullet and case. I barely flare to allow this and then remove crimp before it dries (it dries fast, do one at a time) and wipe off excess.. it will be invisible but make believe it's there.. because it is.
I used clear fingernail polish for years. Mainly because I was clumsy and this is Oregon!
