I'm going to take a Thompson center renegade to Bob Hoyt to have him bore out to 62 cal. My question is what twist should I have him put in the gun I will probably mostly shoot round balls but would also like to have options to shoot a conical bullet if I can find a good mould.

Are you sure he can Bore a TC Renegade it out to .62 Cal? I know he can go .58, but i can’t remember hearing of anyone going to .62 Cal?

You could go with a 1:48 Type Twist like TC did with their Rifles, 1:48 Twist is considered a “Middle of the Road, Compromise Twist” it is not a Master of Roundball or Conical, But is suppose to shoot either or Reasonably well. Me personally, I would avoid the “Compromise” Twist and go with a Dedicated Roundball Twist of 1:66, no more than 1:72, A .62 Cal Roundball is a SERIOUS Hunk of Lead.

.626" weighs 368.4gr.
.615" weighs 350.0gr.
.606" weighs 333.3gr.
.596" weighs 318.2gr.
