PUTTING IT TOGETHER
For the main body cut the cylinder along the duck tape used to hold it together and the tape at the base then cut again on the other side then hold the base so the sabot looks like this.

And fold along the cardboard’s cresses as done with the main body and then fold into cylinder and duck tape it.

SABOT RING
Next is the ring to hold the sabot together during storage.
First cut a strip of cardbourd7 ¾”(or 7 ½”) long and 2” wide.

Then using these strips of tape put them over the overlapping tape from the base to look like this.

And put duck tape on either side of the disk and put it on one end of the main body and fold over the remaining tape onto the main body. Then take a strip of duck tape and cut it lengthwise.

BASE
Next is to make the base to hold the sabot together
First make eight 1 7/8” lines intersecting at a central point and then cutting along the “imaginary” circumference line to make a circle.

Then roll or fold in all the cresses in the cardboard and then roll in to a cylinder and duck tape it together.

First cut out a 6”long 6”wide piece of cardboard

You're really going to use cardboard as a sabot? It's not easy to make carboard into round shapes. If you really want to make it even rounder take a box knife and cut a lot of parrerel lines but not all the way through. Cutting it about half way through makes it so much easier to bend. This is all assuming the carboard tube IS the sabot. P.S. It's DUCT TAPE.

I have used them multiple times and have worked perfecly 99% of the times and have made about 20 of them.

P.S.The main body donsn't stay square(most of the time the main body is round during fabrication)

Just a suggestion - maybe try using electrician's tape instead of duct tape or just cover the duct tape with electrician's tape. I have used duct tape to resize ammo and get a good seal and it tends to grab along the inside of the barrel. Electrician's tape slides a lot better, especially if you stretch it slightly.
