    I'm Friggin Pumped!!! Ruger 77/357 On The Way!!!

    So I have wanted one of these ever since I heard they were coming out, and finally found one in stock at Prairie Gun Traders, so couldn't stop myself. These guys have been excellent in the past so I went ahead and ordered this morning.

    I already reload .357 so this will be a cheap plinker, and camp gun for me. Will be great for the cottage on the quads.

    I have a Leupold 2-7x33 waiting to go on it for the range, but don't like putting scopes through the nightmares of quad trails around the cottage, so it will be easily taken on and off with the Ruger rings that come with the rifle.

    Anyways I will put up some more pics, and a range report when I get it, but here is a pic off the net.

    You may not like guns, and choose not to own one. That is your right. You may not believe in God. That is your choice. However, if someone breaks into your home, the first 2 things you are gonna do are 1) Call someone with a gun, and 2) Pray that they arrive quick enough to save you.

    Dude, how is a $700 rifle a "cheap plinker"?!?! The Weatherby Vanguard S2 (guaranteed MOA) is more than $100 less! In 223, but still....

    I can reload .357 magnum for half what I can reload .223 for.

    The rifle isn't cheap, but it will be cheaper to shoot than every rifle I own other than the Savage MKII in .22lr.

    For reference right now I have a .243, and a Mauser in 6.5x55, and even reloading I'm looking at around 50 cents a round.

    My lead .357 magnum loads are around 20 cents a round.

    Can it shoot .38 Special? Theoretically, it should, provided that the mag will feed it.

    From all the reviews, and video's yes it can shoot .38 sp, but for a reloader that is pointless.

    But yes it is relatively cheap to shoot for a centre fire rifle.

    Just hope it makes it here before I leave for the cottage on the 31st. It is scheduled to arrive the same day according to CP, but the last 2 orders from Prairie Gun Traders arrived days before they were scheduled!

    Here's hoping.....

    Seems like an interesting rifle.....I never even knew such a creature existed before I read this thread.

    It was talked about quite a bit almost a year ago, and then it was never seen. With all the problems getting Ruger products these have come in to Canada few and far between, so there has been very little about it.

    I started a thread asking when we are gonna see these, and was told apparently they were already around but in limited supply so I started looking, adn low and behold PGT(one of my favourite dealers) had it in stock.

    Worked out well for me anyways.

    I will post a range report and review when I get it of course.
