If you are shooting lead bullets and there is lead fouling in that part of the barrel (very common), you will notice more resistance there.

Also, The bore tends to be tighter where the barrel screws into the frame. The process of torquing the barrel causes a slight constriction there. The harder the barrel is torqued on, the tighter the constriction. How far did the bullet make it into the barrel and what kind of bullet?
