Rifle Case Cleaning

Does case cleanliness effect chamber pressure significatly. In other words, does the inability of the case to grip the chamber walls from dirty cases cause pressure to go up/down?

I really don't clean my cases all that methodicly. Just a dip in water/vinegar, rinse, wipe, and let dry.

    Case cleanliness doesn't impact the grip on firing (unless still having case lube on them!) but a dirty case can and eventually will scratch up your chamber.

    Your method is fine, I do the same myself. So long as soot, range dirt, and case lube are removed, they don't have to be purty.
