.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

    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.

    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.

    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

    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!!
