yea, a 1-48" twist is right down the middle. Too fast for a sabot and most cases a trifle fast for a patched round ball. I know the old St. Louis Hawken's were all like 1-48 but most patch and ball shooters are using 1-66 or 1-70" twist bartrels. You're getting a 1-1,000,000 group out the Tradition's Hawken. I would have kept it too with that kind of accuracy. I'm surprised that a Buffalo bullet or TC maxi-hunter wouldn't shoot fairly well. I think my FireHawk is like 1-35" rifling and shoots 1.5" @100yds groups all day with Maxi-hunters as long as I do my part..
