What brands of current production 9mm & .45ACP seal both primers and bullets?

Thanks.

I ordered a couple boxes of S&B 9mm from SPG and was under the impression the ammo would be sealed as the picture from thier ad shows...

http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/cb/cb.aspx?a=148319

When it arrived the boxes did not show the red sealant around the case neck, and the rounds are just as pictured (with no red sealant around the neck only the primer).




So, did S&B stop using neck sealant or.....?

Is there any other FMJ pistol ammo that is sealed in both places?

Now that you mention it. I cant recall the last time I bought any that had the bullet sealer. Just going by memory, but I dont think I have seen any,
at least in a while. I am not sure now that I ever have. :smile:

I have a good stash of S & B .45 Auto, and no bullet sealer on those.

Have you pulled a bullet on a few S&B rounds?

You may find they have a sealant (asphalt type or otherwise) present inside the cartridge case.




I'm just kinda wonderin' about why they would seal the primer and not the case.

I never have, pulled a bullet on them, that is. I wonder if any of
the other brands are like this? I have some Federal, and a few others
as well, but have never checked any of them to see.

Is primer sealant usually an indicator of neck/bullet sealant being present also?

The only pistol ammo I have that I know is sealed in both spots is Remington Golden Sabre (according to thier website).

I was hoping that there are some definite brands out there that consistantly seal both areas. :goof:

Is current US military pistol ammo completely sealed?

Okay, so M882 seems like a for sure way to have properly sealed 9mm...

Does anyone know how well Winchester M882 functions in a G17?

Where can I find some Win. M882 instock online (besides SPG)?

Thanks. :smile:
