New Ruger 77/357
« on: January 31, 2020, 07:46:45 PM »
Been looking for one on n off for awhile.
Ran across a new one and decided to trade a Remington 6mm and a Winchester Ranger 30/30 for it.
Got 300 ea for them and with 2 boxes of ammo got out the door for 297.66.

Have 2 other model 94 30/30s and never really had a use/need for the 6mm.

Ill put a nice lil scope on it here shortly. It came with rings.

Well it now has a 100 rounds down the pipe 50 357 and 50 38.

Shot well and darn a curate right out of the box. However the small frt sight is hard for this old man to see so she will for sure get a scope or red dot soon.



Off hand 15 yds with 357


Center mass off hand 30 yds with 38s.

I like it and it will see more use than the 6mm (Shot it 2x in last 15yrs.) and the 30/30 has maybe 2 boxes through it since I acquired it in mid 80s. I still have Dads and Grandpas model 94s anyway.

 Now my bug out gun set up is complete 6in Kframe S&W revolver and this thing. Should I need to grab and go.

Shield,

A friend got one too some yrs ago.  Nice rifle.

We were chroning different factory loads he bought for it.
Were shooting his rifle and my 6" Ruger for comparison.
Some ammo was 300' faster than my revolver,  but be aware -
Some weren't any faster at all.  This really surprised me!

So - Run'em over a chrony.

It will be handy if you do end up with a hog problem.

It funny. I have as 9mm rifle.
So they should be pretty comparable.

I use it constantly. Extremely  accurate to 200 yards. (I HAVE NOT TRIED IT ANY FURTHER )
Cold bore is deadly accurate.

I have a pro mag green laser light with a 3 x 9 scope. You can see to properly identify and hit a target at over 150 yards at night.

Those big fat bullets make a pretty rude sounding smack when they hit a coyote.
There is NO mistaking it.
I'd love to try it on hogs.

Pistol caliber rifles are awesome Imo.
Darn lethal too.
Pretty surprising a what a little extra barrel in a sealed chamber can do for a pistol round.

Yup so true.
357 out of 16 in barrel should be good to 150 yds easily.
I plan to find out.

I dont know the specifics for .357,,, but I know they have (as a standard), 35,000 psi,, where a 9mm is 35,001. According to rated book standard.

So they should be pretty comparable. 

In 9mm,,, 16.5 inch barrel gives it the maximum ballistic. Any shorter, your wasting powder, any longer, you actually are losing and slowing the bullet down.

To my understanding, and I may be wrong. I believe .357 has a slower burn, which would change things. How much I dont know. But I would think, a longer barrel would work in 357.

In 9mm, I  prefer / find, a 124 grain spitzer/pointed bullet works best in mine for accuracy.  So I mostly just use CCI blazer brass 124 fmj.
It's not the hottest, but most consistently accurate,  and CHEAP. .
The few off brands and flat nose defense bullets were ok to 25 yards, then started hitting all over. By 50 yards, they were way off.
They just didnt seem to wanna float nice in the air I guess.
For varmints,,, who cares. If the cheap / or/ military Spitzer FMJ  works,, then heck yes. I aim for bones. Mostly Shoulder blades.  It makes a helluva loud smack. AND Puts em innna pile.

As I have several 357 /9/38 converible long barreled Sa ruger pistols, I'd really like to have a 357 rifle also.
But honestly, the lever actions just are not that appealing. Semi is ok,, but a purpose built bolt action is the cats meow. For me.

That's a nice rifle you got there. 😁
I'd love to have one of those.
Add one more to the bucket list 😏

Im of same opinion on lever guns
I have 2 in 30/30 so I wanted something different.
Read about this one back about 2-3 yrs ago. Been “looking” but not ral hard for one since. They are around just not what Id call plentiful in shops.

So if your in the market for one just keep an eye peeled when out n about.
