Installed dura bond wide bearings and noticed a little meat hanging out in the front of the journal, used the proper tool for the install and the oil hole in the bearing is dead center looking down the oil passage from above, I’m assuming I’m ok but I’d feel better with a second opinion. Thank you in advance

As long as the oil hole looks centered I would think you couldn't get it any better.

Maybe it's a casting tolerance or the original machining or the oil holes is shifted.

A picture of the cylinder wall might help answer that. It was aimed at the camshaft bearing. It looks like a course finish without the correct angle of cross hatch. Ball hone on a drill? I also don't see any champher at the bottom of the cylinder.
Sharp edge around the bottom is not piston friendly.
