270wsm to 7wsm

I have a 270wsm Tikka T3 SS lite. What changes would have to be made to rifle other than re-barreling, to shoot 7wsm?

    The simplest answer is.... put a new barrel on it. That is all that is required, all other modifications are unnecessary unless you need to do trigger work and free float the new barrel.

    How many rounds did it take to shoot out your 270 wsm barrel?

    Thats the i haven't shot the barrel out yet, but i was thinking about going a little longer/heavier barrel. This is all for future changes, im not quite ready to do it, just gathering all the information i can.
