I believe the answer to this question relies on the ballistics. This rifle will fire a sabot. The question will be "How accurate will the shot be?" The barrel twist rate for this rifle is 1:48 which is OK for round ball, conicals, and short pistol sabots. I would recommend a lighter sabot. Typically, a faster twist rate would be used for shooting heavier sabots, say 1:28 twist.

Google some ballistics calculations and then make up your own mind.

This is a fun rifle to shoot.. and round balls are great to practice with, plus they are cheap.
