Primer sealer is a solution to a problem that doesn't exist. The press fit of a primer in an UNDAMAGED primer pocket, is very water resistant. ANY liquid would have to be under a lot of pressure to overcome that press fit. Meaning; very deep dives in a lake or ocean. A simple raindrop or a soaking rain has no pressure other than atmospheric pressure, it won't get a primer OR the powder wet.

Bullet fit in a clean neck and undamaged bullet shank is also very resistant to moisture.BUT the military seals both the bullet and the primer for those what-if situations. What if a Navy seals team deploys from a submarine to a shore landing? I don't know if the weapons are inside a waterproof pack or if the ammo is also. That might result in water seepage, so the ammo has the primers sealed.

They're going to get their butts kicked over there this election. How come people can't spell and use words correctly?
