Using a sabot you have the same problems as using shells, you have to load the dart into them.

If you have just a square piece of larger foam behind the dart, that won't be a problem.


A square piece of foam will not have a good seal in a riffled barrel. Also then your incresing the friction needed to propel the dart. The sabot would have to be shaped like the ammunition for early rifled cannons in the civl war.

by "Square" I mean a piece of foam as ling as it is wide. And yes, that shape would do it.


Even a cylindrical piece of FBR won’t have a good seal in a rifled barrel you’d need a foam that is less dense. In addition if the small piece of foam is propelling the dart then how will you get the dart to spin?

the force of the sabot on the end of the dart would be sufficient to create spin on a dart.

the blasters that it would be useful on all take ridiculously long to prime.

That is why one would only use this gun for single shots from a concealed position. For example, a singled titan can draw blood at close range, but at longer ranges it is perfectly safe. It's accuracy doesn't permit these sort of shots, however.
When one shot is all you need, priming time isn't an issue.
