Anyone ever had a different barrel (than the original caliber) made for your 760/7600? I have a 760 chambered for .270 and it has had the barrel shortened 4 inches. I'm thinking .30-30 with a scout 2.5 - 2.75 long eye relief scope, for a "woods" rifle.
Thanks for your time.
As the others have alluded to, if you're just looking for a 30-30, there are much cheaper routes than customizing your .270 760!
First off, there are some general rules to the road for custom gun building. Generally speaking, any custom build should try to stay in the same family of cartridge size as it relates to bolt head dimensions. In your instance, the 270/30-06 size. If you were to really do what you want, you will will not only need a custom barrel, but a different bolt! You're already into more $$s than two or three 30-30s!
So, assuming I talked you out of the 30-30 conversion, next decision is rebarrel or re-bore. I've heard good things about these folks when it comes to reboring: JES reboring

but if you go to Hart's website, there's scan info on barrels specifically for the 760.
