I recall reading an article on 308/30-06 sabot rounds using .223 projectiles that produced insane terminal ballistics.

Anyone hear or do any testing on 40S&W/10mm sabot rounds using 9mm/30 caliber bullets?

I know that .357 Sig and 9x25 Dillon rounds exist.

The use of sabots would make use of more readily available 40S&W/10mm brass without a barrel change.

I believe you are thinking about the Remington Accelerator rifle ammo, which I'm pretty sure has been discontinued. I have seen setups for using .224 bullets in a 7.62x25, but finding sabots in the correct size may be difficult. At least .224 to .308 was available and .44 to .500 is readily available due to muzzleloading, but .355 to .400 is an oddball size. Either way, the biggest problems you will encounter will be 1) getting a semi-auto to feed correctly and 2) accuracy. Those issues are averted by using bullets of the correct diameter for the cartridge.
