Hello all, I've been kicking around the idea of taking an SKS and rebarreling it to 22-250, adding a swept back bolt handle, making a new stock, losing the gas system and running it as a straight pull. I know that I'd need a new barrel, trigger job, solid side mounted scope rail, and to open up the bolt face from .439((?)(correct me if I'm wrong 7.62x39 bolt face) to .473 for the 22-250. The only thing I have holding me back from starting my project is I don't know if the SKS action could handle the 22-250 pressure (7.62x39 = 45k psi according to Wikipedia and 22-250 = 65k psi according to Wikipedia) Would the action be able to handle the 22-250? This will be my winter project as long as it seems safe to do so. My thought is that it would make a very handy, and quick shooting varmint rifle. Hope to hear everyone's thoughts, thanks!
