Marc Mitchell: I bought a new Ruger 77/44 in 2001 and was completely disappointed in its
accuracy. The accuracy of that rifle was awful using factory ammo,
reloads, jacked, or cast bullets. I never could make it do any better than
that. Although I did shoot a few deer with it, it was always at close
range. The best group I could ever get from that gun was about 8 inches
from a rest at 50 yards. I sold it! The gun itself I loved. It was in
humble opinion the "perfect" truck gun/woods carry gun.
Now I have the bug again for the sweet little carry gun and I also cast and
reload 38/357 and i am thinking about getting one of these new ones. I
really hope Ruger has the bugs worked out this time.
s west: did you try any 38 special ? if you did will the rotory clip clip feed them
since they are a bit shorter.?
Doug Malone: Is it possible to get a larger clip?
HugoStiglitz: Be careful when ordering one through an on line dealer. The gun I received
was blued, not stainless. I did not even know it existed...thought I was
getting stainless. Ruger's website only indicates one model with a
9gibsonlespaul: does anyone make a .357 carbine with a tube mag and synthetic stock?
Revolver Den: Jeff, Next time you talk to any Ruger reps., mention the idea of this
77/357 model in a Takedown version. I'd be all over one of those!
dopeofthepope: I like that flag. "Come and take it" - up to peoples imagination if the
bullet or the gun. lol
Gary Woodard: Glad to see you bolt with your right hand, I was wondering if it was still
Appolo Geticks: I wonder why they don't or won't make these carbines in semi auto?
Gary Rumer: That is a handsome rifle. A good little brush gun where the range is short
and anything from whitetails on down.
angelodzn07: Hey I was wondering if the magazine would fit in a pistol mag pouch
Gunblastdotcom: Yes I can, and it feeds very well. Jeff
Nox Aternum: Correct me if I'm wrong, but this gun takes a magazine, not a clip.
Gunblastdotcom: To me, it felt much lighter than the hit on the shoulder from a 30-30
carbine. From looking at the numbers, the felt recoil should be more than
it is, but even shooting long sessions from the bench, the little Ruger
just causes no pain at all. jeff
Gunblastdotcom: I did realize that, and thanks!
slag2099: they need to make 1 in 500 s&w or 460 s&w
Gunblastdotcom: I don't think so, but have not tried it. Jeff
Gunblastdotcom: I do not. Jeff
Gunblastdotcom: It depends upon what you prefer. Both are good, and each is just a
different method of getting the cartridge from the magazine into the
JW's BulletsNBlades: Great vid as normal.
BulletArc47: I had this rifle and I was thoroughly disappointed by it. Out of the box it
had a very rough action, wouldn't chamber anything other than FMJs and JHPs
and later it developed an ejection problem. Sent it to Ruger and they fixed
the ejections problems and replace the extractor. It also had issues with
cartridges getting stuck in the magazine regardless of which magazine I
used. In my humble opinion: I would buy some other type of pistol caliber
repeater if you want one.
Kench Maker: @Gunblastdotcom thank you, I like that rifle so i can share ammo with my
S&W 686 357 mag, same ammo to carry with. thank you for the response. ken
Blake Porter: @FAZER00432 Nothing left. Even a .22mag or .17hmr does a ton of damage to a
nbenicewicz: What a coincidence, I was on Ruger's website today looking for the BX-25
magazines and I saw this interesting rifle. Now not too much later one of
my subscriptions posts a video review. What are the muzzle ballistics like?
Nox Aternum: Yeah, I've met some really help and supportive experienced shooters, people
who've been shooting for decades and have a real passion for the sport. One
of the saddest things is that these people have been demonized in the media
and the mainstream consciousness, either as being bloodthirsty hunter types
or as being gun toting nutters, neither of which is true and is so far from
my experience of shooters. Out of interest what do you shoot?
Gunblastdotcom: It is not. Jeff
Gunblastdotcom: Tell Ruger what you want. If they don't hear from customers, then they
don't know what the customers are looking to buy. If you go on Ruger's web
site, they have a page where you can contact the CEO, Mike Fifer. Mike
personally reads each message. Boge
Doug Malone: Do you need a separate clip to fire .38 Special?
Gunblastdotcom: Current MSRP is $793. Street price would probably be in the $600-650 range.
BoxANT: Would be a great companion to a Ruger 357 revolver... very tempting.
sorichar: Any word on a left hander?
Gunblastdotcom: In a rifle, the 357 has a lot more power than when fired from a standard
length revolver. jeff
GARYMANDIEVAN: That thing is nice Jeff
andrewsheldonreeves: It would be cooler if it was semi auto like the 10 22. That would be
awesome for hunting boar.
Kench Maker: you have any idea how meters to kill a boar?
McNugget83: I LOVE my 77/357. For deer hunting, you can use it in shotgun territory
(pistol caliber!) and mine loves the cheap Federal 158 grain JSP's from
Wally's. I'm hitting 1.5"-2" @ 100 yds with these rounds. Would love the
Trijicon, but still I'm completely satisfied with my Nikon Monarch African
1-4x variable, it fits this rifle like a glove, and on 1 power I enjoy
shooting it both eyes open. I'll have to give the Buffalo Bore a shot...
don't suppose anyone knows how they load them (powder/primers?:)
Gunblastdotcom: Direct from Sturm, Ruger in New Hampshire. Jeff
angusforbreakfast: @AssaultWeapons Me too
Gunblastdotcom: No - JHP is the type of bullet used, and +P indicates the power level of
VicariousReality7: @67mustangreg What for, lol Just buy an 8 inch thompson contender
72darkf: I ghuess you suppose right. Knife issues getting closer in germany, too.
Hell who knows there all this is going to end. If people want abuse
something to harm others, they´ll find a way. Laws or not.
Neil Couey: Should be a good brush gun. Practical if you already have a .357 wheel gun.
Nox Aternum: Yeah there's no logic in any gun or other "weapons" laws, and even if there
was I'd still disagree with them. So leverguns aren't legal in
Holland/Netherlands? (my apologises I'm not sure of whats correct there).
We can't legally, have pistols in much of the UK and so a lot of ex-pistol
shooters moved onto pistol calibre carbine lever guns.
kwgunworks: Great longtime brother!! Keep up the good work! K&W Gunworks Delray beach,
FL--- Smoke em if you got em!!!
spdrwlf: I have a .357 carbine, and I love it. It is good for plinking with the .38
and I love peoples reaction when they see the added power the longer barrel
gives it. Much cheaper round for round than a 30-30, but within 100 yards
will take as much meat....if you do your part. I also love my 30-30, 303
Brit and 30-06. How can more choice make things worse? Try 'em all.
JennGreg McRoberts: It's a very good rifle I never had a jam or MIS fire
harley anna: I just ordered one of these babies. Plan on putting a low power scope on it
for my 12 year old daughter to take her first hog at close range. Using 158
grain hallow points. I'm tickled!
Papa.Emeritus.II: Sold! I'll take one! Now, to find one of these bad boys in North Dakota?
I've waited a long time to consider buying a rifle, and, in my opinion,
this rifle is best; IE: .357 mag, rifle, good all around gun. I was looking
into many 22 mag rifles but felt like I wanted something a bit bigger but
didn't want a large caliber centerfire rifle or big bore pistol. .357 mag
load out of a bolt action rifle is really appealling too me.. I will surely
be buying this rifle very soon! Any suggestions?
Tom Nelson: That's what I want when I add a rifle to my closet. I already have a 357
Mag revolver so this would be perfect for me. Thanks for this video.
