If you can print accurately enough, you could try printing sabots for sub-caliber projectiles.  It would be great if you could use something like small nails, but I doubt they’d be stable.  Maybe you could use 4.5 mm steel BBs in a 5.5 mm rifle.  Or maybe you could get a bunch of military surplus flechettes and design your sabots around those.

For indoor target shooting, I wonder if standard 6 mm airsoft BBs are soft enough to be forced down a 5.5 mm barrel.  Maybe you could make a sizer for them by sharpening a tube of the correct size.
