Great Low Wall! I’ve got one in .25-20 SS coming, if the seller will ever ship it.
On the Pawn Stars show, I didn’t like it from the start. Just the name of the show trying to be a play on porn stars, kind of like Shitz Creek or whatever torques me off. But last year at a Navy reunion my buddies and I had to go see the shop. Very underwhelming, about as big as half my garage. I’ve been to garage sales that have better stuff. Basically – it’s a prop for the TV show. Best gun line they use? “We won’t know what it’s worth til we SHOOT it!” Be it a priceless Patterson or original Hawkin….these guys are hacks.

Back to the OP, that’s an interesting cartridge. 150 grain bullet nudged out of the case by 26 grains of powder? Sounds like a good prospect for garden or chicken coop pest control or short range target work. Could be fun.
Stevens’ idea in designing this cartridge, when there were already a multitude of RF & CF .32s to choose from, was to use it as a means for restoring shot out bores in the older .32s, reboring being a Stevens specialty. (Any makes were accepted.) .313″ was the nominal bore dia. for most of these other .32s, so the Ideal was given a .323″ bore to allow for reboring smaller bores, the largest of any of the so-called .32s.
But short range (100 yds) target work was also one of its intended purposes.
