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.

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.
