The block (400) is done

Well they finished the block today,and I recently made a post about the 400 block,and got alot of good advice on it,but he said the cylinders cleaned up good,He honed it out,decked the block,and put new cam bearings,and freeze plugs.There is a down side, he said on the 4 cylinders on one side were about 2 to 3 thousands over,He told me he believed it would work because the low side started about 4 1/2 at the bottom of the block.He honed all the cylinders to 4.185,and the bottom measured 4.188,and the other side come out perfect to 4.185.I know that there is a low spot at the bottom of the block,but what I don't know is should I run it,and use a set of file set piston rings.Here are some pics. of before it went to the other machine shop,because I believe the first one I took it to caused my problem,any info will help make a choice on what to do.Thanks for looking,

Id run it. I don't think it hurt anything. It's below the ring pack and piston rocking won't hurt anything there.
