12ga estate bulged brass

Hello all, I recently got my win 1897 back from the re builder and went to the open range to test her out. I had a failure to eject problem and went about tearing the gun down. I noticed some bulged areas on the brass. I have other brands to go test in the future but was wondering if anyone has ever seen this. Thank you for any input!

That almost looks like you've got a large divot in your 1897's chamber.

Your smithy probably ruined your chamber. I have 2 97's. Neither produce a hull like that.
