Sabot's sizes

I don't know for sure, but I was told that the color of the sabots would give an indication of the physical size / diameter. I have only used these one time and the one I used was so tight I thought I'd have to use a sledge hammer to seat it. Is there a chart or guide to choose or identify the sizes of the sabots

There's isn't any master list of color codes for sabots because different companies make them.
Plus when some are specially made for a company like TC, they may be a different color than what the manufacturer uses for their own similar sabots.

Here's 2 major sabot manufacturers:

Allways go by the caliber listed on the package, there is no standard.

This site that arcticap has listed, is about as close and true as you are going to get. Yes, it's great to see a listing on the package but so many times they are loose or unmarked. Then you might have to go to the fit and measure process. When dealing with the 50's, you basically have two, not counting the RB sabots. They are more common with the smaller calibers not being so common.

Be Safe !!!

Thanks for the info, honestly doubt that I will shoot that many of these but wanted to at least make a feeble attempt at doing it right and not screwing up something.
