Ought to work, no idea if it would be accurate or not. The way I see it, patch and sabot do the same thing, one is rigid, the other not. Please report back on results, it sounds like an interesting experiment.

going to the range soon and I will report on this..... and a nice thing if it works is that pushing down the lubricated patch swabbing to bore will be done lest often.....just like loading a round ball..... I hope.... all this in my future report
