You will get a speed-up. Be aware that keys with multiple signatures and 
uids consume far more space that keys with fewer signatures and uids.

The safe way to start with an empty keyring is:

0) send any new signatures to the keyservers (gpg --send)
1) rename pubring.gpg
2) rename trustdb.gpg
3) import your public key(s) from a keyserver
4) edit your key(s) to make them trusted
