Hello Bill,

I believe the 1-48 twist is a compromise twist for both projectiles and round balls but is more suitable to bullets. Usually, a rifle for exclusive use of round balls would have a much slower twist, 1-66 comes to mind. If I'm not mistaken, Cabelas guns are made by Traditions.

You could also keep an eye out for a T/C Pennsylvania Hunter. I think this rifle is a flinter and rifled for round balls. Not sure if it is made anymore as T/C has really thinned their line out.

Here's a link with a ton of BP Links to aid you for more info:
