    Depends.

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

    Commercial ammunition: Always.

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

    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:

    .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.
