I do intend to reload for this rifle and obviously don’t want my cases scratched. But even if I didn’t plan to reload, I couldn’t resist correcting this flaw. Sometimes I keep fixing things until it’s broke😎.
I’ll figure some way to get in there without buggering up anything else.

I split the end of a wooden dowel and attached a strip of emery cloth and used a drill motor to spin the cloth. I ended with a good polish and I believe the rough edge is gone.
Another good day at the work bench.
