Anyone know of a source for a round blank about 30 inches with proper twist for a 32 S/W rifle build? Thanks

Have you check with CPA?  A month ago they had a pretty good selection of blanks in several calibers.

I get my Douglas blanks from CPA pricing is real fair. You can also get it pre-profiled and polished and well worth the extra money spent. Finish is actually ready to rust blue or blue and it is actually that nice. They will provide you with what ever want, contour, size just let them know what it is you want it finished at including the length.

The popular trick among target pistol smiths is to use .308 10 twist barrels for 32 S&W Long. No reason not to do the same in a rifle as long as you can sort out the reamer pilot. It does certainly open up availability of very common barrel material.

I had thought about that but was unsure if it would work. Thanks for your reply.

Aren't the twist rates for 30 caliber barrels going to be 1 in 10 or 1 in 12 instead of  the 1 in 16 of the 32? Why not go with the real thing?

I have been getting mine from Douglas with a 1 in 16 twist that works for the 32-20 and 32S&W. Don't need a faster twist with the light bullets

You might also check with Green Mountain Barrels. I know they used to make a nice little octagon barrel designed for Model 1892 lever actions in 25-20 and 32-20... the latter might work for you if available in a round version.
