Before Mr. Guffey posted the caution about the powder filling in the primer pocket space I would have reseated any high primers, but now I have good information that this is not a good practice.
Pull your loads and de-prime. If it were me I would drape the press to get a look at how much powder might get in the pockets and even if I saw none I would still use this precaution.
Now re-using primers that have been previously seated is by many alright to re-use. I however would make sure and only use them in practice ammo and mark the batch as such because I have had 2 miss-fires from recycled primers.
That in no way is proof, but the odds are that recycled primers are suspect.
