TIkka 300 wsm Barrel swap

Hey guys,
Im new to the forum and long range shooting in general. This may be a dumb question but im not sure. I have a tikka 300 wsm stainless. I was wondering, would it be possible to but a new barrel on this gun in say a 300 win mag,? or would i need to swap out actions and other parts? I really dont know how the internals,action and barrel attach and was just thinking down the road if i wanted to upgrade to a better barrel, could i also change the caliber to a 300 win mag?

Re: TIkka 300 wsm Barrel swap

I have the tikka t3 in both the 300 wsm and 300 win mag. It is the same action in both since tikka only uses one action in their rifles. Both are fine cartridges and rifles. I don't think it would be worth the trouble to change barrels. But you can make a 300 winchester out of yours. The Tikkas are great shooters as is.
