    Gunsmithing Burr in the neck of my chamber

    I think I have a small burr in the neck of my 325WSM's chamber. It's leaving a light scratch that kind of curves from right to left up the neck as you look at the case from above/behind. Is this anything worth worrying about? Is it a major fix? thanks, Will
