.284 win question

Hey

If I have a 6.5x284 in savage 12 benchrest, is it easy to convert it too .284 win by just buying a new barrel?

Or am I missing something, sorry I've never changed calibers before.

Thanks

Yeah, barrel swap, 284 WM dies, and 7mm bullets.

Other than that, I think you're pretty much set.
