What should I use if I want to weatherproof around the neck and primer of my hunting rounds? Will it effect pressures and or fouling?

First let me state that I have hunted in weather conditions that range from 55 below zero to 125 degrees above, and hunidity has ranged from 10% to 101%.

Secondly, I have never "weather-proofed" any of my cartridges, except for the loads I used in my Bang-Stiks while SCUBA diving.

Those cartridges were "water-proofed" with the cheapest nail polish I could find. Worked fine down to 150 feet.

I will have to 2nd what Riccardelli has said, I have never weather proofed any of my rifle or pistol reloads, I just make sure my primers seat tight and my cases neck are not loose, I do use a Lee factory crimp die on SOME of my reloads it just depends on my hunting and travel to and from along with recoil from several cal.
