Since yall are discussing reamers and chambers, what causes a concentric ring in a chamber. One you can actually see on a piece of fired brass.

Rolling a chip or a small piece of swarf welded to a flute. A flush system goes a long ways to preventing this.

It is normally from not applying a constant pressure on the reamer or stopping and starting
which allows a chip or other debris to get between the reamer and the chamber wall marking
the chamber.

It is also caused by a dull cutting edge from nicking it. (You can find it by running your fingernail down the cutting edge)

If you drop or damage a reamer they can be re sharpened for about $35.00.
