Ball bearing ramrod

Does any company make a ramrod with ball bearings? I was thinking it might help if the sabot/bullet followed the rifling instead of going straight in. Thinking accuracy might be affected. My cleaning rods spin just fine, should I find a heavy duty one of those? Or am I missing something.

Re: Ball bearing ramrod

My 47" W/O tips _coated B/B_ 338 rod is a J. Dewey Mfg. Co. Inc., Southbury, CT. 06488. Long coated ones are a bitch to get. I lost mine and a gunstore ordered me one and they sent him the wrong one twice! Just before I went to CO in Oct I found that puppy and canceled the ordered one.
Good luck.

Thanks guys I didn't think I had a stupid idea. I might go with the spin jag it screws right on and clears the barrel.
