This one is a puzzle to me, maybe team-6.5CM can help?

I realize I'm on thin ice asking about a .223 rifle here on the 6.5 CM forum but, you all are the best :)

I pulled out another Savage from the safe today and cleaned her up so she won't divorce me. This one has seen maybe 300 rounds down the pipe, mostly factory ammo. She is the gun I would take to the range if I want to be sure I'll have a good day, very accurate, not fussy at all.

Anyway, I borescoped the barrel before and after I cleaned it using Wipe-Out. As I'm going down the barrel after cleaning, about half way in a 24" tube, I see this halo. I backed up on it over and over, it's there, I swear, and it was before beer-o-thirty.

It almost looks like a zone caused by the rifling machine stopping and starting again. I'm just guessing here as I've never seen a barrel being made. And yes, this is half way down the barrel, not where the rifling starts.

Thought I'd ask you all if you all have seen anything like this?

It’s light emission. 
Run your scope the other direction you’ll see what I mean.
