Hawg, Thanks for the info. So what will happen to if I load this rifle with patched round balls? Will the accuracy be WAY off or just not so reliable? From my research I have been doing today, it looks as though anything under a 1:48 twist is really only meant for loads other than round ball.
Here is a picture I took (sorry I didn't orient it properly before uploading) of a rifle in an older Dixie catalog. This barrel has a fast twist and yet the load recommendation is patched ball??? Why here I wonder?
