Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is proud to announce the Ruger® 77/357™, a lightweight, bolt-action rifle chambered in the venerable .357 Magnum and fed via a rotary magazine.
The bolt-action 77/357 features a five-round rotary magazine and is offered in the Ruger All-Weather® configuration, which includes a durable, weather-resistant stainless steel barrel and receiver and a rugged, black composite stock. Although it is fitted with fully adjustable iron sights, the 77/357 also ships with patented Ruger scope rings, allowing a variety of sighting options for this lightweight (5-1/2 pounds), quick-handling rifle.
"The 77/357 is an effective tool for hunting medium-sized game - especially in heavy cover," said Bruce Rozum, Chief Rifle Engineer at Ruger. "Bullet velocities of .357 Magnum ammunition increase significantly when fired out of the 77/357's 18 1/2" cold hammer-forged barrel. In testing, Hornady® 140 grain FTX® loads were clocked at over 1820 feet per second. Furthermore, the flush-fit, five-shot rotary magazine does not protrude at the rifle's balance point and, unlike tube-fed rifles, the Ruger 77/357 can be readily loaded and unloaded," he concluded.
