.22lr FMJ ammo

Ever since I've been interested in firearms (which is more or less ever since I can remember ) I wondered why there is no FMJ ammo for .22lr.

I mean .22lr is by far the most versatile round, it comes in a wide range of different loads from subsonic to hyper-velocity, with many different bullets including shot-shells and even tracers, but there is no simple FMJ (apart from the few they seem to have produced for the High Standard HDM during and after WWII in order to accord to the Hague convention).

I'm well aware that there is no obvious need for such a bullet, still it's interesting there isn't even a single manufacturer offering one.

Seems others had this thoughts, too, but I guess that's more of an internet hoax:

. G17 3rd gen. (9mm)
. Taurus PT22 PLY (.22lr)
