Barrel Twist

Why would a slow twist in the barrel of a gun make it shoot round balls better than conicals?

Conicals are longer and much heavier and need a faster twist in order to stabilize. This is a relative thing. A twist like one turn in 32 inches just might shoot both round balls and conicals well.
