58 caliber Huntsman
 
I have a 58 caliber Huntsman that is 28 years old. I am about to use it and am wondering if i should get conicals or roundballs.

Huntsman, by who? Picture? Determine what the rate of twist of the rifling is. Fast twist, use conicals. Slow twist, use round balls. Fast = <1 turn in 35" Slow = >1 turn in 60" In between will be optional and will require experimentation to determine what works best.
