I'v heard that metal unions tend not to seal properly because of the angled sealing surfaces. What are you using as a burst disk... perhaps you could try a "soft" - like a peice of soda bottle.

A small ring of silicon?You would have to wait for it to dry and remove the excess after each shot,might work but it would suck...
