Unless you have a good way to deal with the microcracks introduced by that machining, I would suggest doing the strength calculation based on the thinnest part of the shelf under that groove.

Even then, it might be a good idea to use 3 brackets/pins on each end. Otherwise, you are putting all of the weight on the pre-cut to shear the shelf.

I don't recall where you are located. If you are in an earthquake zone, then you might want to add some extra safety margin to the strength calculation.

SW Mo. No more earthquake zone than a lot of the country.
