i have a huntsman in 58 cal. its 25 years old and has never been shot. i am going to use it this seson and was wondering if i should get conicals, roundballs or pinballs (just kidding). the thing looks like a sewer pipe w/ a handle.
thanks,
paul

I'm just guessing that they used a fast twist as they do now(1 in 28). I'd try the conicals.

If nobody there can tell you, call H&R and ask what the MAX charge for that rifle is. I beleive the rule of thumb is(somebody stop me if I'm wrong) to match the starting weight by volume to the rifle caliber ie 58 cal start with 60 grs and work up not exceeding the max,whatever that should be. I wish centerfire was that easy.
