7.62x39mm red sealant?

Hey guys! I got a new SKS:



In my search for ammo to feed it, I realised I wasn't seeing much of the red sealant for the cartridge necks and primers. Have the Russian ammo makers stopped using this stuff, or stopped sealing the cases entirely?

I would like to know of a place to purchase some 7.62x39mm ammo that has this red sealant. I like that better for long term storage. Anybody have any ideas?

Thanks!

Golden tiger uses purple sealant. Pretty much the same. Its what I tend to buy if its getting stored for awhile. Its a bit more expensive but I like it.

I think most of the other mfgs switched from lacquer coated to that grey powder.

Golden Tiger has purple sealant around the case neck, and red sealant around the primer.

Other than that, I have not seen any 7.62x39 with sealant in the time that I've had my AK (around 2 years)

^ Yeah I seem to recall it being more available a few years ago. I keenly remember buying plain ol' Wolf FMJ but it was green laquer coated and had the red sealant. To me it just seems better for long term storage. I also like handgun bullets that are sealed. Every time I open the cylinder of my S&W model 642 there are 5 primers with blue sealant looking back at me. Speer Gold Dot rounds, gives me the warm n' fuzzies considering it's most humid around here in summer.

you can also buy your own sealant or use nail polish

like mentioned above you can seal the rounds yourself. it's incredibly time consuming though. great for a long weekend where you're snowed in or some other crappy time
