Default Martini Cadet

Headed to Troy, NC this August to start my gunsmith training. Gotta build 5 rifles before I can graduate so I'm already looking for project ideas. Found a Martini Cadet in .310 for sale down under. Thought about buying it and taking it to the school for conversion to a sporter. Rechambering to .357 mag sounded like a nice project. Any thoughts?

A word of caution. My Dad had his .310 cadet rechambered for .32.

A neat little collector's piece was rechambered into junk. It randomly lobs those .32's at a target ten yards away. Beyond ten yards, you don't even hit the paper.

So if you're going to do it. Do it all the way.
