Im sure some of you have seen this already, but for those who havent; a .223 conversion kit for the SRS




The best option so far for varmint hunting and cheap plinking.

More about it here for those intersted:

I knew it was in development a while back. But I didn't see the need for it. Yes it's cheaper and less recoil than a larger round like 22/243. But You can do a whole 223 bolt gun for much less than a conversion for a DT SRS.

Sure you can, just like you can build several other guns for less than the price of an SRS. But thats not the point is it? People who choose the SRS do so because of its ability to eliminate the need for 1,2, or 10 other rifles. You have one gun, one platform, one trigger, one scope (huge savings), and your familiarity with all these singular aspects can keep your skills concentrated. I have a very nice custom 700 in .223, but it sits in the safe with all the rest, (common story for SRS owners). And sure I could do a 22-243, or a 22-250, but who wants to spend 1400$ for a barrel that only lasts 1000 rnds?

Yes that is true. I have 3 barrels for my SRS currently. It is a heavy gun for shooting something as light as .223 but to each their own. It would make for inexpensive shooting compared to other calibers.

While a .223 barrel lasts longer, the whole point of the high velocity .22's isn't barrel life. It's long range trajectory. I push a 55 gr bullet at about 3800 fps out of my 22-250 Ackley. I use moly bullets and haven't noticed any notable accuracy degredation yet. But I don't shoot 1000 rounds out of bolt guns very often.

What kind of magazine or magazine modification did you have to make to feed right?

This is a custom and complete conversion kit from Short Action Customs, it is completely turn key. Installs and operates just like any other kit.

Does it eject reliably? I know DT was having problems with a 22-250 conversion and discontinued it because of that reason.

Honestly, .224 Valkyrie would beore interesting than .223 for the SRS.

Can confirm, the SRS is very heavy. Even hot loaded .308 doesn't wear on your shoulder.
