Any downside to buying​ berkshire stock?

I'm having a lot of trouble with entering the market. Initially having listed to this podcast i made the mistake of thinking I can time the market so I pulled out a lot of stock picks (which seems to be the mantra). I now firmly believe that we cannot time the market or guess when the next downturn is going to be. Further, I try to not focus on macro as much (no one knows what's going to happen to rates).

Now, I am looking at reentering the market. My plan is do broad index or consider buying bershire stock. Why not just buy Berkshire stock? They have stockpiles of cash to buy during downtown and they are of course the best investors out there.

Is there any downsides to buying Berkshire?
