It would probably be easier to find steel or brass tube stock of the appropriate size. Get a tap and die set to run the threads, and just double nut one end to use as a head.

That's not a bad idea. But would the threads be as strong as regular bolt threads(Unless that is how bolts are made)?

Technically, probably not. But not by enough to be a problem. Maybe make one and test it before going to the tedious work of doing them all.
