Is it possible to use a 220v to 6v transformer for converting 6v to 220v DC to charge 250v capacitors? Answered

Is it possible to use a 220v to 6v transformer for converting 6v to 220v DC to charge 250v capacitors?
If yes, then can anyone give me a schematic for the circuit to =
convert 6v DC to 220v DC,
charge 250v capacitors ( @220v ),
capacitor overcharge protection with something like resistor,
capacitor full charging LED indicator,
capacitor full charge LED indicator,
SCR (Silicon-controlled rectifier) based capacitor discharge (use power for magnetic coil) circuit.

If you need 220VDC then why not put a rectifier on the 220VAC line?

Transformers need AC to work, so using a different circuit, such as a boost converter would be easier and more efficient than converting to AC then rectifying the output.
