    If I only neck size and don`t need to trim, do I still need to debur the inside and outside of the case neck?

    I de-bur and chamfer new brass, the first re-load of factory ammo and newly trimmed brass. So it depends on what brass you are loading.

    2nd time and after-NO. First yes and first after trimming the case length-or any time the mouth is messed with except by a die.

    I just barely touch the neck every time I load. Just enough to make it shiney could probly do it with a copper neck brush. I don't know why I do it I just have got in this habit. As far as cleaning the primer pockets I do it on all my rifle with the exception of AR brass and I don't bother with pistol pockets. I use an RCBS trim mate and a primer pocket uniformer takes about 1 second a piece same with the necks I also use a VLD debur on the trim mate. Makes quick work of it.
