Any experience with Mike Hill, gunsmith in Springville, Utah?

He's close, convenient and I like the prices. Looking to have my Rem 700 rebarrelled to 30-06AI with a Lilja barrel.

GSSP,

Give me a ring. I have a gunsmith for you, but he is in Ogden.

I have my action and barrel in hand and the second rifle that I wan't to rechamber.

Maybe we can take him all three and save a little money. The guy in Ogden is Hammerli trained and a curmudgeon, but he does good work. Paul Hodgins pointed me to him.

Mike

I know Kirby did a 30-06 AI on a Rem 700 ( I beleive it was a Lilja barrel but would not swear to it) for a person and that person was very happy with it. I also saw it shoot one day.


Something to think about

Re: Any experience with Mike Hill, gunsmith in Springville, Utah?

I have a 700 LSS in 3006AI with a 25" Shilen Match. It is a fun cartridge. Mine shoots half inch or better with 150 gr BT. Just started toying with the 180 Sierra BTSP. I'm getting 2950 fps with RL22.
Velocity gain over the 3006 is not spectacular, but it is there and it is great fun to fireform and shoot. Great choice of cartridge. Let us know how it shoots!

GSSP,
"He's close" is an understatement, Mike Hill is in the mouth of Hobble Creek Canyon no more than a stones throw away. Mike is a nice guy and an OK gunsmith, he built my first custom gun but I have moved on to gunsmiths that are far better
good luck

Re: Any experience with Mike Hill, gunsmith in Springville, Utah?

Mike is a good general gun smith and has built a lot of guns for local guys in the area. they all seem to shoot very well at moderate ranges.Not many guys here are into the long range thing,except 7mmrhb,goodgrouper, uncle"B" and myself to some degree.If you want a super job on a rifle the man to see is at Performance Guns in Westhaven Ut. But you will have to be patient as he has a big backlog.I have a 6MM BR improved by him on action which he also builds that shoots in the 2's, also a .243Ackly that is also a very fine shooter that he rebarreled for me.
