The best way I know to seal a primer is to paint the base of the cartridge with nail polish, then wipe it off, leaving only the headstampings and primer perimeter with the nail polish on it.

I steal a different shade of nail polish from the wife every time I do this. I then write the date that I bought the ammo on the box of ammo and paint a little bit of the nail polish next to the date, which allows me to easily identify the age of all of my carry ammo.

When it gets old, or if I weather a good rainstorm while carrying it, that box gets tossed in the practice box and I start the process over again.
