    Manufactured Ammo

    I have a question for everyone / anyone who might have knowledge of "Manufactured Ammo". I have noticed that a lot of "Store-Bought" ammo lately has "Red Dyed" Primers in them. Is this just a Manufacturer's "visual" aid, to advertise that particular manufacturer?, Is the Bullet manufacturer doing it for some safety purpose? Is it a new "Aid" (the red dye might have a sealant) to further the life of the ammo? Or what? Has anyone seen these bullets?I would think that most everyone would have to have noticed this (if they buy ammo). Any Ideas?

    I see this in Golden Sabre bullets. I think it is to seal the primers to the cartridge case, in effect waterproofing. Ensuring dry powder to prevent duds when you would most need a dependable round.

    Which is your favorite? The $8.00 bottle of George and Roy's or the $.50 bottle of fingernail polish?

    That's true, but I don't use it because of price. In my experience (40yrs) fingernail polish is the best thing I've used to seal any primer. Regardless of time or conditions, I've never had a round fail to shoot after sealing with it.

    Does your wife get all when she finds half of her bottle of polish gone after each reloading session?

    You mean that you don't purchase your own?
