Default virgin barrel

After finishing my build, while cleaning my barrel I noticed a small piece of metal shaving left over from drilling the gas port hole. Will this affect the first round out of the barrel? Tried time knock it off w the rod but didn't want time damage the rifling next I will try a brush any suggestions?

If you have a brass or carbon fiber rod, then a rod is a good option. Definitely use a brush.

I highly doubt it would destroy your barrel - but better safe than sorry.
Hunting is a loophole in the 2nd Amendment to the Bill of Rights.

There is no privilege to keep and bear arms.

Arms are for killing people. All other uses of an arm are illegitimate uses.

Know your rights. When stopped by police and not doing anything wrong, tell them you don't consent to searches. They are allowed to lie to you, but you're not allowed to lie to them. Just say nothing.

I usually knock em off with the tip of an aluminum cleaning rod....although I have been told to just shoot them out.

I run a bore snake back and forth through the barrel after I drill a gas port hole.
The brush on it will normally take anything that might be an issue off.
If it's really small, and the above doesn't get it I shoot it out.

You can pull a bullet and push it down the bore and it should remove the burr. Likely the 1st shot will take it out too but this is alittle less agressive
