Trying different ways to clean primer pocke

I always clean primer pockets and hate getting someone else's brass that doesn't. The bottom of the pockets are all pitted and take a lot more to get clean. I saw a guy have a miss fire because of dirty primer pockets-first hit seated the primer in the crud, second time around set it off.
I enjoy reloading. I use a single stage press. I'm not fast. I am confident my ammo will work every time.
I used to deprime before tumbling. The pockets weren't getting clean, there was media in the flash hole, and I was running dirty bras through the resize die.
I use a pick in the edges first then the RCBS hand tool. Works for me.
