Ohh, I gotcha. I actually remember seeing that now. (It's been a loooooong time.)Check out attachment
I remember them well yellow sabot with a .224 55 gr. bullet in it. Just a little over 4000 fps. would vaporize a five gallon can of water. I was told when they took them that the reason the gov wanted them off the market was the bullet did not take the rifleing and the sabot disentegrated so no way to tell where the bullet came from. But I never recovered a whole bullet just little bits ? They were fun and a while back here I saw the sabots for sale somebody had got hold of a case of two of them.Do any of the .30-06 groupies remember the Remington Accelerators? What caliber was the original bullet covered by the sabot in the cartridge? Has anybody tried to remanufacture the cartidge? Or was it simply a government thing?
Yep, I too had a 30-06 Parker Hale Midland back in 1980. The sabot bullets shot as well as my rifle did with "normal" ammunition and they accounted for quite a few wild dogs.I had a 30-06 Parker Hale Midland back in the very early 80s and purchased a box to try and they shot very well indeed contrary to many reports I was reading in American Magazines at the time.

yep they were 22 cal bullets,,,,like i said loaede 110 grainers and flew great i was hitting mark at 400 yards from pump remingtonThey were .224 caliber bullets in a sabot. I think they disappeared because, other than going really fast, they were useless. It doesn't matter how fast you miss something.
