Sabots have their own set of physics when it comes to accuracy. Spin needs to be imparted to the slug clasped inside a plastic shell and they should separate after exiting the barrel, now that's where things go wrong. Tight fitting shell will impart spin while it may not separate and a loose fitting shell wont impart the spin onto the slug. A pellet remains true to the center axis of the barrel while sabots don't. They may work if you intend to hit something within 40 yards or less in an air rifle. while in powder burners there is too much power and even a off balance slug will be lethal with cavity representing a keyhole.
