.45 Caliber Sabot Bullets in a .50 Caliber Air Rifle

You can use sabots in an air rifle just like you can in a shotgun. You get a higher velocity with more shock and better trajectory. The sabot allows you to use a smaller caliber bullet in a larger bore. 50 caliber sabots allow you to fire a 45 caliber bullet from a 50 caliber rifle. The lighter weight bullet achieves a high velocity.

Hornady and other manufacturers make sabots for muzzleloaders but you can use them in a air rifle too. They work the same way.
