If anything the powder area is smaller than the throat of the chamber. There is no logical reason for an enlargement. You would have to assume that the ball would compress then expand to fill the hole?
Now, a cartridges revolver has such a line between the cartridge area and the throat.

And as mykeals say none of mine including an 1862 manufactured 1851 style colt have such an enlargement.
