I think the 32-40 and the .32 Win Spl were about .311 or .312. Are rimmed and power wise about 30-30. Barrel would have to be set back and the rims are smaller so that would be cause more work. They are shorter and slimmer so would not feed right without more work. The easiest would be a new barrel in 30-40 krag that would most likely be the least work. I'm sorry but I can see no merit in your idea at all. The only thing that rifle has going for it is the price of the gun and ammo.

I just handload for mine. All mine are either right at moa or under 2 moa with consistant handloads. Loading your own opens a lot of doors as decent 311 rifle bullets are not hard to get.

The .454 is not a new or different round. A bore and groove caliber description can be expressd in a number of terms. The .454 is a standard .45 caliber with a longer case to keep it from chambering in older firearms.
