32-40 uses .320" bullets, 32 Special uses .321" bullets, 8mm uses .323" bullets. If you want to keep it simple, you might use 32 Winchester Special bullets, but they are not terrifically aerodynamic.

If you decide to use an 8mm barrel so you can use 8mm bullets, you will have a wildcat round of sorts, but it wouldn't harm anything. You would have to get a different expander ball for your reloading dies.
Never try to educate someone who resists knowledge at all costs.
