damaged Model 70 .270 barrel

I have a Winchester Model 70 in .270 win, it has a damaged barrel the end of the barrel has a bulge in it and it looks like if I cut off the last inch and recrown I could have a very good gun I am not worried about the value of the gun as it is right now it has no value because it is not accurate, I have been advised not to take it to the local gunsmith as he is not that good.
I am willing to do it myself so what do I need besides a hacksaw?
I have a Remington model 700 and its barrel is almost 2'' shorter already so an inch or so isnt going to effect accuracy that much , right?
If all else fails I can always replace the barrel.

Just picking some smarter brains then mine I hope?
