Poll- do you clean primer pockets?
I'm running a poll to continue the endless debate on whether or not cleaning primer pockets is worthwhile... Feel free to participate if you want. :)

Personal ammunition: Unless it's for a match where I could win money, hell no.

Commercial ammunition: Always.

Pistol? No.

Rifle? Yes.

deprime before tumbling, if that qualifies as cleaning primer pockets, then yes on all brass.


ZekerMan 10-20-2011 03:03

Rifle yes....pistol no

Uncle Don 10-20-2011 04:39

This for me as well.

DoctaGlockta 10-20-2011 07:12

Not usually. Unless I'm having a hard time seating a primer.

unclebob 10-20-2011 07:27

Hunting rifle yes, Plinking rifle no.
Pistol No.

rpgman 10-20-2011 08:16

pistol no

have not starting loading for rifle yet, but I will once I start.

ColoCG 10-20-2011 08:43


Pistol= No

Gunnut 45/454 10-20-2011 08:50

Yes to both! I'm not a high volume reloader usually 20 to 50 rounds per loading period so I clean all pockets! Is it a PITA yes, but it does mkes for better rounds. Never had a dud round because of it!:supergrin:

Beanie-Bean 10-20-2011 08:52

.45 ACP = yes, because of the different primer sizes that have been showing up in my brass.

I use a large primer pocket cleaner to catch the SPP cases, because they really all look the same after a while, especially during sorting just after tumbling.
