Remington Accelerators
30-30, 308, 30-06, Now Obsolete
.
Remington introduced the Accelerator in
3 calibers: 30-30, 308, 30-06, in 1977.
As you can see by the pictures, these are
not new calibers, just a special loading
using a sabot that enables a .22" diameter
projectile to be discharged from a .30"
diameter barrel.
(22 Caliber fired from .30 Caliber) .
Reports of velocities of more than  4,000
feet per second are more than possible, as
the sabot drops off right at the barrel
opening, leaving the small .22 projectile
to speed on its way.   
Due to the Democrats anti-gun issues,
as no rifling marks are on the 22
projectile that is fired from the firearm,
Remington yielded to goverment pressure
and stopped making the accelerators in
308 & 30-06 as they are fired in military
semi-auto and fully auto rifles.
The 30-30 & 30-06 accelerator may still
be produced, as the 30-30  is a rimmed
cartridge not used in semi-auto, or fully
auto weapons, and the goverment believes
the 30-30 is less apt to be used in a crime.
You can buy the sabots and load your own
30-06 or 308, no laws against it, but I am
not sure it will work that well in a
semi-auto firearm.
.
Remington used two sabots
in the accelerators, a translucent
and a light gray color.
Available for sale as a
collectible are the 3 shown  
here:  30-06,  30-30 and 308 in
light gray.
Not clear as in picture
on the 30-06, light gray.
