Howa Barreled Action

Howa has a 6.5-55 barreled action --- Can this be used to make a 6.5-284?
Any better way to go to get to the 6.5-284?
Thanks

    You'd have to cut down the barrel and re-chamber. I'd recomend just getting a new blank and selling the other barrel. The 6.5x55 is a nice caliber in my opinion.
