I searched enough, been shopping for some time for a Muzzle-loader and I am concerned on the barrel twist. Should I be? Will not be using Sabots being it's Colorado , I read the normal 1:28" twist is not as beneficial then as a slower twist using conicals..?

Ultimately whatever I buy I will have to try different combos to get the correct set up but if anyone has any specific advice on powder, bullets, grains, etc please let me know.

I am looking at spending around 500 for a new inline. just too many choices;)

To make a long expensive story short.. the T/C with the QLA barrlels do not shoot conicals very well. So. If you have a choice choose another gun. [/b]

Krayton, have you tried Powerbelts?
I shoot them out of my Omega .50 cal,
they load easy and group like a rifle out to 150yds.

I did not like how light most of them were, under 330 grain. Although they were going to be my last resort.

Kinda slow getting to this post, Kraton.

If you are wanting accuracy in a heavy bullet, you might want to consider the Hornady Maxi-ball 385gr.

I hunt with the Powerbelt in my .54 cal with good results on a big cow.

I have been wanting to try the Barnes "Spitfire" solid copper, I think the 285gr. is the heaviest for the .50 cal.
