    . Just a thought: R U SURE that it's the magazine tube twisting, and not the now out-of-round swivel band moving on the tube ? I'm mentioning that because making the swivel band out-of-round isn't IME the proper way to improve a sloppy fit. ...

    FWIW, .310 Cadets have been successfully chambered in .32 Winchester Special, but the top of the breechblock needs to be scooped out a bit to allow the round free loading & extraction/ejection. Here's one that sold recently: ...
