I agree with Neal on holding on the inside to turn the od. Just ensure either that you take the light cuts (as said by Neal) or you custom make the soft jaws to almost cover the entire bore.
I welded a piece of bar to the jaws and split them. Then turned them to suit the job. You can also leave a 'lip' to protrude the job away from the jaws to allow a chamfer on the back edge too.
Doing this will stop the job from forming 3 'lumps'. Do be careful of spring though..
