I am sure that sealer has been (is being) used (consistently) on most ammo. Why all of a sudden start using "RED" dyed sealer? It makes reading the info on the ammo just a tiny little bit more difficult (not easier); that alone should make someone question the reason ammo manufacturers "suddenly" start placing "Red" Dyed sealer on their cartridges. Reading this, I sound like a paranoid (even to myself); it's just that (to me), there is no logic in it.

    Sellier & Bellot ammo has that sealer - red that is - around the primer. I have seem some military type ammo with various colors of sealers on them, but beyond that I don't know exactly what is up with that particular color of sealer.
