Nice John.

I'm looking forward to hearing a little more about it. I've been thinking of a 32 S&W in a rifle as I already have a 32 Long Colt in a Marlin 1892. The 32 S&W being substantially easier to load for and capable of more performance.

Should be neat.

Not a cadet but a Stevens in 32 s&w long, love it to death.
Will create an addiction to little 32 cartridges quickly.
Don't need speed so much, the thwack from 100 gr bullet is pretty good.
Cheap to shoot, readily avail and accurate.

I intend to build several more small rifles in 32 cal including a 32 h&r mag for black powder use only.

I have a reamer I had ground, yet to use, to modify the 32-20 neck & throat for 8mm service. Specifically for the martini cadet rechambers done in 32-20.
Has a short throat specific to the rcbs cadet bullet with the shank opened to full diameter.
It's a hand ream proposition. On my short list to complete.
Having same issue as you and wanted to keep the mint bore I have and also the 32-20 basic framework. This was the solution I created.
