Default Do I need to resize brand new brass

Hello All,
I just got myself 1k of Remington Brass from Midway, and they are brand new never fired. I check and see all these brass are good and have no damages. Do I still need to resize them before I load bullet and powder and primer?

Thank you so much in advance,
Blank Zero

Midway recommends it in case any of the mouths have gotten deformed in transit. Seems like the flaring die would be sufficient for any that weren't obviously deformed. YMMV.

I always resize new brass, just to make sure it's all round and all the correct diameter. After resizing, I check the OAL and trim+ deburr it if it varies too much. Even if I don't trim it I do deburr it. Most factory-new brass has quite a burr on it.

I champher in and out and bring the die down just an 1/8'' over the case mouth, this will round out if needed. some will say this will move the shoulder but????? in my 28 yrs of doing it all has been good for me.
