Size/prep NEW Lapua .223 match brass ?

Just picked up a box of .223 rem match brass from Lapua.
This brass looks perfect. Necks are round and concentric. It looks to me as if they have already been "prepped". I find them very consistant in length, and they appear to not have any burrs inside the necks.

I'd prefer to work these as little as possible , as they are so concentric.

What do those of you that have used this brass, or other high end brass think of loading them as is without sizing, trimming, chamfer and deburring ?

Thanks in advance !

I got some of the same brass. What I did was run them over the expander button to make SURE they were nice and round. Then I inside chamfered them, and loaded them.
