Picked up a Ruger 77/357 today in a trade, cant be happier! These rifles are all around amazing. Bolt is smooth,18.5in barrel, and it weighs 5.5 pounds! I love it. Took a 4 mile hike and did some minor plinking with it. If you guys haven't checked one out I would suggest you hold one to see for yourself, feels like a bolt action 10/22 in your hands. I did order the wolf performance trigger springs to clean it up a tad, but that's just be picky, trigger is decent. Same sights as a 10/22 as well.
