I've noticed a difference between Remington and Winchester SRP when reloading RG 5.56 brass. The Remington are more difficult to seat than the Winchester. Having ultra clean primer pockets may make the Remington primers easier to seat ??
I'm still using a traditional tumbler, but considering moving to SS.
Never seen any difference in primer seating if I don't clean primer pocket versus scouring it clean. I have determined this don't mean squat unless you are doing ultra-precision work like bench rest or 1000 yard shooting.
Again, if you cannot measure it on the target face, it is meaningless.
