Why does Russian .30'06 have this? DocAV? Ammolab?

All Russian .30'06 has this band towards the case head, much like much larger cartridges do (25mm Bushmaster and so)

What is it and why is it there???

Looks to be faulty workmanship, since there's no special magic needed to produce a case of that length with smooth wall dimensions. Looks to be a brass case, negating the need of some kind of special doodles to make a steel case work. Regardless of the excuse, it sounds suspicious to me.

Why not go to your ammo mfgr's website and ask them directly?

If it were a product I made and wasn't supposed to be like that, I'd want it back in a hurry.
