I have some Nitros that have lost the seal on the end of the shell and some of the filler is leaking out. What's a good material to use to reseal this? Will it affect the accuracy with some of the filler gone?
Thanks.

Use a liberal application of fingernail polish to seal it, or glue, or even candle wax. Those Nitros are well known for that problem. The filler is a buffer which helps with pattern density. If a little bit leaked out, it shouldn't affect it. If a lot leaked out, that shell might not shoot as good a pattern.

Be sure they are sealed before you put them in the gun's magazine. I had some, that I thought I had sealed up, to leak buffer in a Mossberg pump. I didn't think I would ever get them out.
