Need some help with this bolt action muzzleloader.  Its a fast twist 1 in 20 I have used Parker 400 gr 45 cal conical to good success a couple of years ago but they are pricey .  I have mainly 2 issues would a 300 gr work in this fast twist, I don't think a sabot will work,in this twist.  Secondly if anybody has one is it possible to get a one piece breech plug ?  I've got the 2 piece which is one of the reasons I don't shoot it much as it is a pain to remove and clean.

Thanks folks !

I had a 1 in 20 twist traditions inline for awhile. I used Precision Rifle Bullets with Harvester Sabots with good results. www.prbullet.com
They have a chart on their web-site to match bullets with twist.     www.prbullet.com/chart.htm

My .451 White is a 1-20 & loves the BIG heavy conicals, but it also loves Hornady SST 200's in the tan Hornady sabot that comes with pushed by 110gr of T7-3F
