Hopefully a minor problem-need advice

I recently acquired a 1944 Turkish K Kale mauser. It shoots great, but I've only used nice winchester factory brass thus far.

I bought a case of Romanian 8mm surplus recently, and when I went and cycled the surplus ammo in the action, 4 out of the 6 rounds cycled really rough/required force to seat. When I extract the round there is a scratch along the casing.

Anyone have any idea what is causing this?

Is the scratch identical on every fired round? If so, I bet you have a burr in the chamber. Time for a visit to the gunsmith.
