    I have a relative visiting and he wants to find a Ruger 77/357 while he is here does anyone know a dealer with one in stock?

    Thanks,

    Wholesale Sports in Vancouver has one, I looked at both the 44 and 357 yesterday and decided on the 44. They still have the floor model 44 in stock too. $649 for either one.

    Wholesale Sports in Salem had one yesterday, but I couldn't get anyone to wait on me (they were a bit busy) so I couldn't see if it was the 77/357 or the 77/44. It's an interesting rifle for sure, I've though about it as a home defense/coyote gun for my parents.

    OK I'm confused. Not being smart but what's the purpose of having a bolt gun in a handgun caliber?

    Some states only allow deer hunting with shotgun or handgun calibers. Serves the same purpose as a lever gun.

    Also you can get much more out of the caliber when used in a longer barrel.

    In .44 is makes an AMAZING silenced set up. Big heavy bullet at 1000 fps with silencer = awesomeness.

    I do have 357 and 45c lever guns,but I couldn't get the need for the bolt gun.
    Nwcid,you must be loading those slow. I know the 44 screams though a 20" lever gun. They push 2k,no? (factory type loads)

    I do not have one but I know they are very popular with hog hunters. I believe they are using .44 special brass and loading accordingly.

    I have a .44 lever gun from when I use to shoot "cowboy action".

    I personally don't have the space to hoard ammo in another caliber, but I've always got room for more guns! I shoot a lot of revolvers so it only made sense that my first bolt action be a 357 or 44.
