Waterproof sealing of the sabot and primer of the XM645 Cartridge SFR has been achieved using a pigmented resin-solvent formulation. Firing tests conducted on experimentally sealed rounds have given every indication that seals are acceptable. Efforts to effect sealing of the sabot by means of commercially available dry-shrink or heat-shrink preformed plastic caps, or to mold caps having the desired wall thickness, were successful. A rapid, reduced pressure leak test was employed.
