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.
