Why no 22-250 AR-10?

Is there a reason no one makes a 22-250 AR-10? I am trying to move most, if not all, of my hunting to AR-pattern rifles, and I would prefer to keep a 22-250. Is it just because there are enough buyers who keep the 5.56 AR-15s that they don't think it's worth the effort?

They sell AR10 barrels chambered for it.

Would it use the same mag/bolt as a .308/.243? The 22-250 case is more tapered.

Yes it would use the same bolt face. One reason I wouldn't use it is because a .22-250 can be a barrel burner and in an AR with a big mag it can happen real fast. But I'm not a .22-250 fan so I have other reasons I wouldn't go with one.

I bet there's a mag feeding issue due to the taper. Can probably only load a limited number of rounds.

Ok, does anyone make an upper in .22 Cheetah? (Not really wanting one, just wondering.)
