The Hide has a lot of info on muzzleloading, especially flinters. I have been shooting a traditional caplock with a twist of 1 in 48" for about 15 years now. I have used bullets, sabots, and round balls to take big Manitoba whitetails, and have found the balls work as good as anything. One of the most recomended flint rifles on the Hide is the Lyman Great Plains, it has a 1 in 60" twist for ball shooting. If I where to pick up a new muzzleloader it would have the slow ball twist.
