As a rule of thumb, scratches=bad. I have a Ale Pail that I use all the time as a priming bucket. Many SMALL scratches, but it always gets a long sit in the sanatizor prior to any use. As a matter of fact it is my Sanitizing bucket, prior to priming.
Use a better bottle or glass carboy for your fermentation and use the buckets for cleaning, sanitizing and maybe priming like i do.
Got tired of waiting for our savior to save the economy, so I jumped into all grain, What the hell!!!
