Re: Brass that's NEVER cleaned
IMO, it probably depends on whether the reloader is a hunter or a competition shooter. For hunting purposes, I would be more likely to use your method. For competition I want to eliminate as many variables as I can so I tend to be far more persnickety with those loads.
There's also some advantage to a thorough cleaning of your brass because flaws in the cases are more readily found when the cases are clean and shiny. Very small fractures in the case structure sometimes don't show as clearly on the surfaces of dirty cases.
