The beginning of my barrel, closest to the ammunition is a little worn , as an uneven like shaved from shooting. Brought used but shoots fine . Should I purchase a new one or contact ruger ?

I'm not a gunsmith and I don't play one here but.......
What you're seeing may be normal and the way it came from the factory.

Ahead of the chamber there is a 'freebore' in the barrel before the rifling starts.
The bullet has to transition from this freebore area into the rifling by way of some sort of a taper cut into the rifling.
Some of those 'cuts' can look a little rough and not be a problem.

As long as it shoots well, there's probably nothing to worry about.
I guess what I'm saying is........ If it ain't broke, don't fix it. ;)

The most important part of the barrel rifling - according to them hillbillies that're in the know - is the last couple inches before the muzzle. That's assuming the bullet hasn't got beaten up by what came before. Gotta get a little spin on thar.
