Sounds to me like a rough chamber that needs to be polished out

Catch a chip with the reamer when removing it and you have a scratched chamber, simple as that

Re: Distinctive marks on brass after shot

Sounds to me like the case is dragging against the back of the chamber then hitting the forward area of the action on the way out.

Without a picture we are simply guessing.
