I know the rifle bench rest guys do.
For pistol? Nope and nope.

For bolt rifle, yes (weighing charges, not measuring length.)

For AR ammo (which I rarely shoot anymore), no and no.

I don't even deprime before cleaning. ie; I never clean primer pockets. Too tedious to deprime.

If I could easily decap, then I'd do it. I tried to set up my 550b with a casefeeder and just a universal decapping die, it sort of worked except the decapped rounds would not fall free in the "finished round" stage so it made it annoying and I figured it wasn't really worth it.

I only clean the flash hole only with the decapping pin... reloading handgun ammo, after a tumble with only cob and Brasso & solvent.

For .223/5.56, I tumble, decap and size, measure brass length, trim if needed, and load it up. I generally do not tumble after decapping, but I am not loading for super secret zombie shoots, scoped-accuracy, or hunting, iron sights mainly.

If your tumbler isn't cleaning the primer pockets there is something wrong with your tumbler. I would get a better one .

I mainly clean my precision rifle brass thoroughly. Bulk ammo I don't stress on primer pockets

My wife thinks I only have 3 guns
