What is the best way to water proof the primer in reloads for inclement weather or is it even necessary? Thanks

I've used clear nail polish, though I got some strange looks from the girl behind the counter until I told her it was for waterproofing ammo. Then a look of comprehension came over her and she said that others had told her the same thing.

I also know others (not me) that use different colors of nail polish to differientate between loadings (i.e. for hunting loads brush 308 vs bean field 308 load, competition loadings, etc).

That's a good idea, I've used permanent ink markers to color code the primers when loading up a test series of shells to signify charge weights. The color goes when the primer is decapped.

Various shades are handy for color coding bullets with various grits for firelapping, also. - Doc

Of course you only use the manly shades like passionate pink right or bright purple or my favorite - hot lips red
