Went out and shot 5 rounds of wolf out of the new SKS. At 30yds free hand I shot a very nice group, only took about 2 seconds between shots.

When I took the gun home I gave the barrel a good scrubbing, inspecting the bore I notice 3-4" in the is a gouge/scratch from 11:00-1:00 in the bore. Looking straight in the barrel you cannot notice it but if you look from the 6:00 position you can notice it. There does not appear to be any budges in the outer part of the barrel. I did not notice this before but like I said you can not see it look straight into the barrel.

What could cause this and is this something I should be concerned with?

Sounds like a steel cleaning rod scratch. Shouldn't hurt a thing.
I got a Garand like that.

My retro AR15 has a gouge also in the bore, doesn't hurt accuracy. As burner said, prolly just a steel cleaning rod scratch.

I dough very seriously what y'all are seeing is a scratch, it probably the gas port in the barrel. Just take the gas tube off stick a pipe cleaner down into the barrel as see if what you think is the scratch is at the same spot.
