What are the thoughts on the proper barrel twist for a bullet in a sabot? Would the proper twist be based on the diameter of the loaded sabot, or the diameter of the bullet itself? That makes a big difference! This pretty much pertains to muzzle loaders, but the same would apply for any sabot round I suppose. I got to thinking about this while shopping for a new muzzleloader. I'm going to end up with a Knight .52 DE so I can use either .458 rifle bullets or .475 pistol bullets and I was just thinking about which bullets would actually stabilize in the 1-26" twist. I have a pile of different bullets in both diameters to test so I'll find out when I have more time after hunting season. I just thought this could make for an interesting discussion here.
