10/22 with a 2-7 or fixed 3x or 4x. Shots are going to be under 50 yards right? No reason for anything else IMO.

My favorite rabbit gun I own is a Marlin 981T. It wears a small diameter suppressor that allows use of the tube mag. Does really well with heavy standard velocity and "subsonic" labeled ammo.

I have a special place in my head for the 981T. Was my very first rifle. That suppressor sounds awesome for this rifle!

I usually go out at night and spotlight them, legal here in Texas. My rifle of choice is a Marlin model 25 and shorts. Works just fine. My springer pellet gun is too heavy to lug around or it would get used also.

At least Marlin and Henry made .32 levers. Marlin was .32H&R. Henry does the 327. I don't know about cycling .32 S&W.

A T/C Contender barrel is probably available on gunbroker or ebay right now. It'll probably be .32H&R or .327. Those will fire S&W but no idea about accuracy. A Contender will satisfy any want for trying something unusual because you can always order a barrel made.

As all this involves handloading, maybe which .32 case you load doesn't matter. No big deal to ream the revolver cylinder to .32H&R neither. People were reaming 16-4s to 327 before word got out and the prices skyrocketed. Probably shouldn't go too far with that.
