Not necessarily so.
I have had several new in the wrap barrels that have had the prick mark.
And, after processing 100 drill rifles, this barrel has none of the drill indicators.
However, if the rifling seems to have some inconsistancy in the middle of the pipe, I could have been bent 30 and then straightened.
I haven't seen one like that, but a friend who has a barn full of 03's told me about barrels being demilled this way and then straightened by some arms house.
