So I posted up I got  new to me Hawken coming.
Nothing wrong with the original barrel, but I want a barrel with deep cut rifling, T/C's are shallow. I like a thick patch that loads easy.
Got a line on a new 32" G/M drop in barrel, which I will most likely cut to 30" for better handling.
However it is a 1/70 twist.
Think it a bit to slow?
I am looking for top accuracy to at least 100yds.

That twist will get you top notch accuracy at 100 yards. May just consider keeping it 32" and not have to worry about getting the right crown on it.

50 Cal. Percussion.
I wonder if there is a company that can make me a barrel with a 1:60 twist

Just called Oregon barrels.
Their barrel maker guy had a stroke, said he wants to return to work but 
it will be a few more months at least.

1:60 sounds perfect with deep cut rifling and I would prefer a 30"

I can only speak of .54 caliber, but my GM 1:70 barrel is the most accurate I have and easily makes one-hole groups at 50 yards off the bench and 2" or so at 100 yards with PRB.  It is so accurate I have been considering another.
