I just purchased one case of .45 230gr. fmj Sellier & Bellott and another of 9mm 115gr. What is the red paint looking stuff covering the primer and the small amount around the crimp of the bullet? And will it cause any problems in my Kimber Defender II and or my Glocks. I assume this stuff is to prevent moisture, but I have never seen this before. I have also heard horror stories about laquer coated ammo. Is that what this stuff is?
Thanks in advance for your responses.

The red stuff is a primer sealer. It is used to waterproof the ammo and should't cause you any problems. Winchester uses similar stuff on their "White Box" line of ammo (also known as "Q" Loads).

the whole wolf ammo situation comes from shooting your gun Rapid Fire till its SMOKIN HOT!!! and then the heat melts the lacquer, usually happens to tight chambered ARs while bump firing.
either dont rapid fire, or let your gun cool down after 50-100 rounds of rapid fire
