Gentlemen, my supervisor has shewn me a photograph of his mates late Fathers muzzle loading rifles. He has 3, and one is a Springfield Stalker in .45. I vaguely remember them advertised in the Shooters Bible back in the '70's.  Has anyone used one of these rifles, are they patched round ball rifles? 

Cheers 

Gordon

I've been through google and haven't found a darn thing on the ROT for that barrel. It looks like a civil war musket so maybe slow twist for the minie ball.

Mate I saw somewhere a 1 in 48 for the .58, so suspect you  would be right for that rifle.  Might be a pickett bullet for the .45 if it has the same twist as it would be a bit quick for patched ball. I am guessing someone here has owned and used one of these rifles. 
Cheers and thanks. Ps are we likely to have anymore of those fun postal shoots again?

probably not for a while. I got a lot going on and its just a pain to set up and run. Especially the target issues.

healed up fine, sadly however, my T3 - T4 in my upper back are loose and causing muscles to tighten and cause pain. Surgery looks to be next.

I have one a friend gave me a while back. I can't tell you what the twist is. I've shot PRB through it on 3 or 4 trail walks. It shoots better than I can hold it but I hit my share of steel with it. Nice handy little rifle.

It appears that it is 1-56" twist per https://www.shootersforum.com/muzzleloaders/100242-h-r-springfield-stalker-58-cal.html
