dirty primer pocket

well i was prepping cases to throw a charge and seat bullets when after priming 10 cases i realized i forgot to clean to primer pockets. so i dropped all the primers, and then for some reason started priming again, i realized after 9 cases i still forgot to clean them. so i just put a black dot on them so i know the difference. i then cleaned the rest of the case's pockets and then primed them. how much of an affect will a dirty primer pocket have on the accuracy and consistency with the rest of the bullets?

Re: dirty primer pocket

Should be OK as long as the primers seat against the bottom of the cup. Some BR shooters do not clean primer pockets. I am very anal about cleaning them. I simply rotate them over the brush provided with the RCBS Casemaster; takes a few seconds, do it every time. I would not knock out primers with dirty pockets, shoot em and see. Just make sure they chamber OK.
