Something shaped like that on the way out of the gun that fired it.
Is it roughly the diameter of the case neck? Here's my theory: some material shaved off of the projectile or perhaps split off the case mouth. Thin sliver of a ring. Was left in chamber and made an impression on the case.
I'm going to guess somewhere along in the brass drawing process it was struck. Went out the door as discounted ammo.
