Ring in shoulder...

Recently put this 243 together, started life as a blister pack ADL with an absolute POS scope.



Stuck it in a McM Classic, added a Timney hunter trigger and mounted a NXS 2.5-10 in Leupold DDs.

Started load development and found a decent load using Barnes 80gr ttsx.



Commenced to cleaning up the brass for reloading and found this ring in the shoulder. Don’t have a bore scope (yet) to get a look at the chamber. Never had a factory chamber mark the brass like this before.



Picture dosen’t really represent how deep the groove is.

Do you think a reamer turned by hand would remove the ridge or should I just leave it alone?

I've got a "custom" rifle put together with a well-known smith that shows that same attributes on the shoulder. The gun shoots great so I've left it alone. Barrels are consumables...
