    Ruger 77 357

    I kind of like the look of the Ruger M77 357 magnum. Seems light, too. Does anybody here have one? Do you like them?

    Wished I owned one, have heard nothing but good. Pound for pound and firepower you may want to consider the .44. MUCH more power for the same price and weight.

    i have the 77/44 and like it, the trigger pull was heavy, so i bought a replacement sear and it's much better.

    Yep, got one. Installed a Volquartsen kit, made a huge difference. Light handy rifle that offers pretty impressive power with minimal recoil. I put a leupold 2-7 scope on mine. I load up 158 gr jsp over a charge of lil'gun. Get one, you will like it.

    Reading your post I got to thinking "Why ?". Please know that I understand "Why ?" has no place in our discussions regarding guns. If one were to look at my considerable accumulation the question would be more like "What the Hell?"

    Let's face it. Cool trumps common sense every time! Me, I've been keeping my eyes open for a Marlin 1894 in 357 mag. Not searching for one, just knowing that if I find one reasonably priced, I'll buy it. The versatility of 38 special rounds makes the 357 option particularly attractive.

    Now, back to "Why?" - My first "Why?" was why a bolt and not a lever. I have lots of bolts but most are chambered in rounds capable of long shots or they are powerful big bore cartridges (e.g. 375 H&H to 458 Lott). The 357 Magnum is neither - hence my "Why?".

    Then my thoughts were, heck, for hunting with a lever, it would make more sense and be a lot cheaper to have a Marlin 336 in 30-30. That lead me to this article comparing the 357 magnum to the 30-30 in rifles. It is an interesting read. Lever-Action Ballistics: .30-30 vs. .357 Magnum - The Truth About Guns

    My conclusion -

    The obvious answer to my "Why?" is "Why Not?"

    And yes, the Ruger 77 in 357 does look cool.

    The Why for me was the weather resistance. That being said I never went through with the purchase of one. (I,m kinda like a women in a shoe store with a deer in the headlights look when it comes to buying guns) Instead bought a CZ 527 carbine in 7.62x39 not weather resistant, but the handiest rifle I have ever owned. I will surely purchase the rugged at some point.
