.270win. Striker?

I have the opportunity to pick up a Savage .270 Win. take off barrel and was wondering if it can be used on a Striker? I know it is a long action and my striker is a short, but was also wondering.if it.can be loaded one at a time and if the empty cases would eject or not? What bolt head would I need? I would be cutting the.barrel down to, but not sure what length I'll cut.it yet.
Right now I have.both a .308win. and a .243win barrels for it.
I tried the search function but no luck, Can anyone help with the answers to these question or should I forget it??
Thanks for your time!
Rupe

Re: .270win. Striker?

Thanks for the info. So the bolt face doesn't need to be changed from the .308 family of .473"
That's cool! Thanks again!

Anyone have a Striker in .270win. How do you like it and what barrel length did you have? Any other info. would be appreciated.

Re: .270win. Striker?

Rupe,

Saw one advertised a month ot 2 ago. He had a 20" rifle barrel.

I just started a build with the 30-06 family in 270, 25-06 and 30-06 in 18" barrel length.

I worried about ejection, but feel better now.

Lets us see your results. Should be a good round in the Striker as I would feel it on a par with the 270 WSM.

Re: .270win. Striker?

Tinkerer, I will do.so.if I.can grab.it. I have.to wait til pay day which isn't til the 1st of Nov. to buy it. I am hoping no one beats me to it.
I was thinking that it might be in line with the 270wsm. but alot cheaper to shoot!
I will post my results if it all comes together.
Good luck on your build Larry should be a "Kick" to shoot the '06 in a Striker.
Thanks
Rupe

Re: .270win. Striker?

Not a 270 but its momma the 30-06



Used it with 180 grainers 2 years ago for deer and goats past between 400-500 yards. The unit came from the factory as a 22-250 that didn't shoot very well so I cut down 243 and 30-06 rifle barrels. The 243 barrel is a shooter but prefer a little more power the 06 provides. The recoil is not bad as long as you don't bend your elbow but am planning on putting breaks or suppressors on both barrels!!
