Smaller punch holes

I have a Classic size DayRunner. A ream of paper sliced in half from Office Max and templates on this site has provided me with all the paper I need. I have an adjustable 3 hole Swingline Acco that works great, but the holes are just too big making the paper feel sloppy in the binder. The bottom of the punch says it has 9/32" punch heads. What size are commercial papers punched and is it possible to get replacement heads of that smaller size?

The diameter of the holes varies between manufacturers, with typical values being 6–8 mm (1/4 to 5/16 inch).

Seems that the smallest standard type multi-hole punches would be 1/4"

Suggestion: Take some scrap pages to your local Staples/Office Depot. They usually have floor models you can try.
