Winchester Model 70 Lightweight Barrel Hot

Last Monday I had purchased a Winchester Model 70 Lightweight S/N G188... in 270 winchester. This past Friday I took out to the range to but some rounds through it. After the 5th or 6th round the barrel was too hot to handle. While I am going to use this rifle for hunting and you don't shoot 6 times (2 groups of 3 rounds) but this is still bothers me. I don't have a lot of money to spend but where can I get a replacement barrel? Maybe in 24". I am not a gunsmith nor do I have the space right now to work on it so I would need to find a gunsmith to install it and blue it maybe.
Thanks
Nick
