Sabots for centerfires

I'm wondering about using sabots in centerfire rifles. Does anybody have any experience with this?

My main objective would be to try this in .45-70. I love the gun, but would love if it shot flatter. I wonder if there's a way to shoot, say, a 30 cal, 35 or even a 40 cal with a sabot, and thereby get higher velocities and flatter trajectories. Side benefit might be less recoil.

I can also see how it would be cool to have maybe a .224 bullet loaded in something like 270 or 308 for an ultra-flat shooting varmint round.

Are the components available for this kind of thing? Are there problems with shooting plastic down your barrel? Just wondering.

i shot some of the rem. accelerators a few yrs ago, wasnt impressed at all, couldnt get any accuracy out of them at all.
An old friend of mine said the same thing when they first came out with them. He was shooting a 30-06. Personally I wouldn't want to deal with the plastic fouling.
