The .22 Accelerator is a special loading of the .30-30, .308, and .30-06 cartridges that is manufactured by Remington.<ref name="COTW"/> It consists of a sub-caliber {{safesubst:#invoke:convert|convert}} diameter bullet held in a .30-caliber {{safesubst:#invoke:convert|convert}} six-fingered plastic sabot with a hollowed base. The bullet separates from the sabot approximately {{safesubst:#invoke:convert|convert}} from the muzzle. The cartridge allows for using a large-caliber rifle for varmint shooting, although the accuracy is somewhat diminished.<ref name="COTW"/> The advantage, however, is the extremely high muzzle velocity from factory-loaded ammunition (see the info box).
