Rebarreling 700 .270 into target rifle

Hi guys,

I don't have any experience with this, but I'd like to rebarrel this 60's vintage long action into a target/varmint rifle. I don't want to mess with the boltface, and it would be ok if the magazine didn't feed.

Could I use this long action and go with a 6mm cartridge? I was thinking 6mm Rem, 6br, 6xbr... I don't know if 6mm rem is a short action round and I'm aware that the others are generally shot in short actions.

Would this type of project be workable? With the right barrel and trigger, a bedding job, with my large action and stock if it would work, is .25MOA asking too much?

Sure could use some insights. Thank you.
