Try this and scroll down to Chamber Throating:

The Rifleman's Journal

This will take you to the article which is 5 parts in length. There is a Link which will be high-lighted I think in the first paragraph!

Good article. It reminds me why I chuckle when people say they want to try doing it themselves... .

Definitely not a job for the average do it yourself'r.

I chamber and build my own guns , it is not as hard as they make it sound.
I notice that they appear to be using a six jaw self centering chuck so how could you dial anything in , in a self centering chuck . It clamps up where it clamps and thats it . The truth is that most busy smiths chuck it up in a six jaw and then go at it with a floating reamer holder without dialing in anything .
Only the purists with lots of time do all the dialing in they talk about.

Re: So you want to....

Great article.

As with most informative write ups, it's not the stuff they show you that's difficult. Rather it's the stuff they foget to tell you about like using copius amounts of lube on the reamer that'll get you in trouble.

They also completely skipped over the now common practice touted by Gordy Gritters of indicating the chamber at multiple depths to ensure that the chamber is cut directly concentric with the bore. I bet they actually did that, but decided it'd make the article too long trying to explain it all.

Then again, the intent here wasn't to be a gunsmith training guide.

Like Wildrose said, definitely not for the average DIY'er. Yet, very personally rewarding though expensive for those who do their homework and succeed. If I do a couple dozen more of my own rifles, I may just break even. Nonetheless, having learned and taught my son how to build an accurate rifle, I'm thrilled.
