Sierra has a 110gr. also.
I don't think you will find any factory loads.

Yeah I bought some accelerators about 15 years ago for white tail ( I was only like 11). I heard they outlawed them because the sabot protected the bullet from rifleing identification and could therefor not be traced to any gun in case of a crime. Cool thing is, I still have about 8 of them! Anyhoo, thats what I'm hoping for, small caliber, fast, and accurate. Not sure how they could reduce caliber without a sabot though.

dont know if you care but this is an interesting convo about the accelerators
If you reload, Speer makes a 110g hollow point that is good in 30-06.

Back in the 60's & 70's for 'chucks. The 125 gr is available factory loaded from Remington and 'prolly others too. The accelerator deals are still around if you want them. I have some somewhere but never tried them yet... The concept is sound though.

You can still get sabots from eabco.

The accelerators were a Rem product--you see them at Gun shows for about a buck a round. I've never shot them--but have heard that accuracy past 100 yards makes long range use tricky. Id like to try them sometime just for fun.

I heard tales that the accelerators tumbled. Also, going with the lighter handloads has to hurt the BC of of bullet, making it very short and fat vs. long and slender. IMHO

If that were true shotguns would be illegal.

Remington's 55 gr 30-06 Springfield Accelerator is just what you are looking for IMO.
