Question on the spent shells

not worried or anything but the scuff on the end of the shell, its always just that one spot and all of them have it. Is this just the result of the shell being ejected from the chamber?

I believe that is a "ring" from which the bottom of the bullet is seeded. The pressure causes the case to expand and it stops where the bullet starts....if that makes sense

Have you chambered a round and then ejected it without firing? Do you see the same mark on it? The reason I ask, is it could be related to the chambering of the round into the barrel. Also check the round as you load the clip too. There are several different places that could come from.
