IMO, A "match grade" reamer is nothing more than a custom reamer and not nessary to
achieve maximum accuracy. Most of the time the only difference is the neck dimension is
less than SAMME and must be addressed when loading, and may not chamber factory ammo
without excessive pressures.
Top Quality reamers are SAMME spec and if they are used correctly are less troublesome
A well cut chamber is as tight as you want and a poorly cut chamber with any reamer is
As far as turning the necks, Neck to chamber clearance is required in order to load max loads
and should be checked no matter what reamer is used for proper clearance.
And a special reamer is not required to get outstanding accuracy. A good chamber Is.
Go with a good SAMME reamer and Smith and you should have a rifle that will out shoot you.
Just my opinion.
