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.
These are 50 caliber sabots with a Hornady 250 grain SST bullet.
You can use any brand sabots and then insert whatever bullet you want. Here are some other brands of sabots.
Now all you need is a .50 caliber air rifle to shoot these. Several manufacturers make them like Sam Yang, Dragon Slayer, Quackenbush, Extreme Big Bore and XP Airguns.
Here is a demonstration video of sabots being used in a 50 cal Sam Yang Dragon Claw air rifle. It is pretty amazing.

The Crosman Discovery pellet gun is a fantastic gun that is trouble free, accurate and powerful. It is a PCP or Pre Charged Pneumatic gun which means you have to fill the air reservoir via a hand pump or air cylinder. The stock is all wood and nicely finished. No cheap plastic. The Discovery is made in USA. The barrel is all steel and rifled for pellets. It holds 2,000 psi of air pressure which gives you about 1,000 fps shooting pellets. The Discovery is a single shot with fiber optic sights and a bolt action.
The reviews on this gun are excellent. The only negative comment was that the Discovery is loud. And this is expected with the high velocity and lack of a muzzle brake. Everything else was positive. It’s accurate and very powerful. No one had any problems with the functionality of this gun. Everyone loved it. It received 5 stars out of 5 stars from customers.
Nice grained wood stock. The Discovery is built to last.
Metal bolt action is fast and smooth. This air rifle is all wood and metal.
Front sight is fiber optic for easy target acquisition. The barrel is rifled and all steel.
This is a great rifle for hunting small game or target shooting. It’s easy to fill the reservoir with a hand pump. No more pumping after each shot. You can keep shooting until a refill is needed.
