I have some blue box Black Hills 75g that I want to use as my go to ammo but it isnt sealed at the primers. Would it be crazy to use some fingernail polish around the primer to seal it or is there another product im overlooking?

You can buy commercial sealer from Midway but personally I think fingernail polish works just as good.

Use pink, that way no one will ever try to steal your ammo!

You can use finger nail polish, but you should thin it with something, either acetone or lacquer thinner, I can't remember which one.

No, it would be crazier to obsess about sealed primers.

Just don't worry about it.  Just as the ducks I've killed with shells pulled out of 4 inches of water on the bottom of the boat, or the deer I've killed after 8 hours of rain, the people you shoot won't give a shit whether you used ammo with sealed primers.  

Seriously dude.  Let it go.

Consult a colorist and manicurist.  You don't want to screw up your Feng Shui with the wrong color nail polish. While you are at it, get those tree climbers on your toes trimmed-the rest of us are disgusted.

If you feel you must seal these primers, get some "reasonably colored" nail polish (which is nitrocelulose lacquer, just like GI spec for primer sealer) and lacquer thinner.  Thin to watery then put a tiny drop in the groove of each case head.

Or you could use airplane dope, also thinned to watery.

Your right, my bad.
