    Looking at my fired brass, it seems that right shoulder is lower then left, so I turn it it 180 degrees and now left shoulder is lower then right. Is this visual hallucinations, or my chamber is cut that way? Its probably bad if this is my chamber, but I don't have issues with closing or opening bolt.

    I'll try this again, it seems that datum line is higher on one side then another.

    I sure wouldn't say you're wrong but I can't see how it would be possible to ream a chamber that way. Reamers are normally held and barrels are spun around the reamer so the finished cut almost has to be highly concentric, that's why they do it that way. ??

    It could be carbon residue unevenly left on the neck and the light source playing tricks on me :D, that carbon residue goes all away to the end of the neck beginning of she shoulder, optical illusion of some sort, so it makes me think...
