primer pockets

What methods do you guys use to clean out the primer pockets? Also how much attention or preperation do you guys give to the flash hole?

    Uniform and then just use a primer pocket cleaning tool to scrape the carbon off thereafter.

    If need be, flash holes are deburred.

    I have a RCBS case prep center and go through the motions on every case every time I load. I use a primer pocket uniformer and a inside flash hole deburer. I also use a VLD deburer for the neck and trim to length almost every time I load (it only takes a few more seconds per case). I think the primer pocket is a fairly important step in case preperation.

    I neck size, trim, debur, and then uniform the flash hole. Then I toss brass in tumbler and let the media clean up the flash holes. This last time after about 3hrs. they still weren't clean, I got impatient and did it the old fashinon way. I know i'm gonna catch hell here and i guess i should punch pimmers tumble then do all the other stuff.

    I shoot,tumble,deprime,resize,clean primer pockets,trim cases,tumble again,load, it takes a little while to do but I usually load 100 at a time so its really not that bad.

    I use the primer pocket uniformer not only to square up the pocket but for all future cleaning. I don't use the wire brush cleaning device as it scratches the brass on the base of the cartridge.

    Flash holes are only attended to once...in the beginning.
