    Sabot for 308 Shoots 223

    A buddy of mine just sent me this, it takes a 223, and shoots it out of a .30 Does anyone have experience with these?

    It would be less disrespectful to burn the flag than to put a thin blue line through the middle of it.

    Remington loaded them as the 22 accelerator.

    It was a novel idea that was marketed by Remington as "Accelerators" in .30-30, .308, and .30-06, but there is at least one company selling the .30 to .22 sabots to duplicate the idea in any .30 calibre cartridge you want to load them in. Don't expect stellar accuracy though ... they didn't generally shoot all that well.

    We gave them a run several years ago. Accuracy was not good. Not going down that route again.

    Thanks. Just wondering. What about pressure and powder charges? I'm running H-4895 @ 41.5 grains behind 168 gr. SMK in the .308, but I'm not sure where to begin with something like this.

    Been there, done that, with terrible accuracy. I had 1,000 of the sabots and finally ended up giving them away years ago to end my frustration at trying to hit something with them.

    Hope this helps.
