    A few decades ago, when I was first starting to reload .45 ACP, I bought some new Starline Brass from Midway, and I know I ran it through the Carbide Sizer, before proceeding to load it.
    I resized new .45 Super Starline Brass too, before loading it, too.

    I always resize my new pistol brass "especially magnum calibers". I don't rely on crimp to hold bullets alone so I want a good tight fit between bullet and case. This is a must with calibers like the 454 Casull and short barrel revolvers like my Alaskan. I also found it is needed with heavy bullets loaded in my Ruger LCR.

    I always size them. First, the press is already set-up that way and secondly, the cases could be dinged or out-of-spec, so why take chances. I would rather be sure that they will all chamber than assume they will all chamber.

    I resize everything new and used. Run it through my progressive press sometimes twice depending if I need to trim and swage.
