drywall primer

I have installed new drywall and completed mudding. I am looking for a good primer sealer that I can texture over successfully using mud with a roller and/or brush. My first thought was Sheetrock First Coat but have not found it where I live. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I like Zinnser primers, 123 would be my choice for this.

USG 1st coat isn't a sealer although it's usually sold at both paint stores and drywall supply houses. Zinnser sells a lot of good primers, several would be good for this job [including 123] Your local paint store should also have a good selection of primers.

Don't forget, the texture will also need priming
