    Aside from the Ruger 77, does anyone know of any (currently produced) bolt action carbines in 357 mag?

    Ruger is it for factory 357 bolt guns.

    Wyojeeper is right... Nobody but Ruger makes a bolt action carbine in 357.

    This is the shortest thread ever!:rolleyes:

    Why bolt action over a lever action?

    I think the rimmed cartridges don't work well in most box mags IIRC.

    There was one 'smith who did conversions on Enfield actions though...

    I don't really see the use for a bolt 357.
    I guess if you live on the east coast and need the short range type gun but I could never fiure out why they would make this

    Not everyone wants a lever in 357 so why not in a bolt gun? They offer it to those who want it, not those who question it.

    It slings lead and makes a really loud pew sound. Isn't that enough?

    14 yo kid back in Port Angeles was doing the whole thing in 17 seconds
    That's 10 revolver 10 rifle and I believe 5 shot gun. But as you see,you don't get to load the shotty with 5 rounds
    I guess I need a reason for a gun and better ballistics or the gun ain't worth while.I'm not sure what the point of diminishing returns is for the 357 or what the ballistics are out to 100 yards,so the bolt thing seems kind of not worth while.
    I'm getting too practical with my firearm selection
