Smile Sabot Question

I have knocked the dust off my mid-1970's H&R Huntsman 45 cal. muzzleloader. I shot it yesterday with the powder and round balls I used back then. It shot great.
I'm wondering if the rifling in that gun would allow me to shoot the new Sabot bullets?
I load 60 grains of FFFg and am not sure that is enough punch to shoot the 195 grain Sabot - my round balls weigh 130 grains.
This is my first post, I hope it made sense and would appreciate any help.
