Can anybody tell me about those saboted rounds for .30 cal. that I've seen stats for? Do they work like they're suposed to? I'd be shooting them out of a 30-30 handy rifle at coyotes and maybe a prairiedog or two for the pot.

they work great the nylon { or specialized plastic} sabot is tight enough to spin the sub caliber bullet so it does stabilize

in the 30-30 work well a bud shoots the 30-06 version they are pricey and you need to know as they weight less and are faster

than the original loading they will shoot lower than your sights / scope are configured for now

I wasn't sure they were still available. I heard law enforcement was trying to get them eliminated a while back because with the sabot the rifling didn't leave marks on the bullet for ballistics investigators to examine. It made it impossible to link a bullet to the gun it was fired from. Looks like that must have blown over.
