Default Honing vs reaming

Which would be recommended for a revolver, such as 22, that has sticking issues? Cartridges in the cylinder that is.

When you use a chamber reamer that includes the counter-bore cut for the rim there is a slight radius just under the rim. If the radius is not there the extraction will be sticky if not difficult. If the radius is too large extraction again will be difficult.
