Browning BLR barrels interchangable?

I have a Browning BLR takedown in 450 Marlin that I shoot very little, something to do with if you're close in power to a 458 WM you're also close in recoil. Last trip to my LGS showed 325 WSM as one of the few calibers with an adequate choice of ammo available, leaving me with the question if I can just get BLR barrel in 325 and swap it in. Bolt face should be the same, and if needed, I can get a 325 magazine.
Does anyone have any experience if this is possible?
I used to love being able to hit hard at 1000 yards. As I get older I find hitting a mini ram at 200 yards with the 22 oddly more satisfying.
