what are you trying to do?
Typical countersinks are 82 and 90 degrees. Most machine screws are 82 degrees.
If you are trying to make a hole larger....a reamer is generally only if you are trying to make it say 0.030 larger or so. If its not extremely critical, I'd just throw it in the mill, center find the current hole and mill a hole the size you are looking for....easily be able to hit your desired dimension

I have done that very thing, in close quarters, where a drill bit was too long. 60 will cut best.

How about 1-1/2 step drill?

Not going to be cheap at $90.

Use a hole saw, lots of coolant, run it slow. Sometimes I drill some small holes around the circumference so there is somewhere for the chips to go. 1/4" should be easy. If you want a tight fit saw it a little under size and file it to fit. Clamp a piece of hardwood on top to keep the hole saw centered.

Don't know what you have to work with but if I had it to do here I would grind the angle needed on an old 2 inch drill bit and clamp it down and keep taking a little out at a time until I had the desired OD of the taper. You can lay the bolt on the drill bit with the head down to get the angle you need by eye.

Can you use an end mill bit, or an adjustable fly cutter?

Just make a round hole and weld it over your egg shaped hole.

How thick of material are you drilling through? A step drill comes to mind if it's sheet metal. A reamer isn't what I'd recommend.

Pretty much depends on the fastener you're using. I suspect you'll find it's either a 100 degree or 80 degree included angle on the fastener head.
