Just to perfectly clear. Can you use different parent cases to make an overbore 22 caliber cartridge? Sure. But the 22-250 is unique to the Savage parent case, hence 22, caliber and 250, based on the 250 Savage parent case.
As I said above, use whatever case you want but the moniker, 22-250, is only correct when referring to a cartridge based on the 250 Savage case.

The parent case was not mentioned so I don't know where your going with that as your comment was

"MtnTrax said:
Tony is correct you are not going to make 22-250 cases from 308. Apples and oranges"

And I said
"I've got some bad news for ya Neighbor


You can very well make 22-250 rounds out of 308, No fruit involved in this operation, ............Back to You

22/250 on the left. 300 Savage center. 308Win right. They all have similar case head and rim dimensions and use the same bolt face. But reforming 22/250 from 308 brass would require some effort due to case necks thickening. It can be done, just not easily or quickly.

I'll vouch for the 22-243 and the AI variant. They are great cartridges that have been overlooked by most. I've owned both and couldn't be happier with them. Barrel life is much better then you think.

What can a 22-243AI do that a 22-250 can't; how about shooting a 75gr bullet at 3,670 ft/sec into tiny bugholes. :>)

I stand corrected. Although I agree with you that the internet is dangerous, rest assured that my information was not gathered electronically but based on my old memory.
My main point was to dispel ANY notion that the 22-250 emanated from anything remotely related to the 308 Winchester.
100% correct. The parent cartridge was the .250-3000 Savage, which is now simply called the .250 Savage. Go buy a box of .250 savage ammo off of the shelf, pull the bullets and neck to .22 and you have the .22-250 simple.
As still some argue, you can not just neck a .243, .260, .308 etc... down and have a .22-250. It requires reforming the case as well.
DONE!

Bump.

Sorry about the confusion I caused last week. It is a beautiful rifle.
