I have never used a special throated chamber to shoot Bergers before, so just out of curiosity, I asked my smith his thoughts on people using specially throated reamers and stuff, because he shoots alot of Bergers, too.
And he said, "You've been watching YouTube and reading on the internet too much...Standard throat is perfectly fine, nothing special has to be done to shoot Bergers in a regular rifle. The benchrest guys do it because they seat them WAY out there because they have little cases and long bullets."
And he was 100% right. My 7RM he just finished building for me LOVES the Berger 168 VLD's and he used a standard reamer.
