Ruger has just released their model 77 centerfire chambered in .357 Magnum. Their model 77 with rotary magazine has previously been chambered in 44 Magnum which has been popular with pig hunters for its close range stopping ability. Although the .357 Magnum is a smaller case than the .44, it should still have some appeal to similar minded hunters. The .357 would also make for a better plinker to help hone up on those shooting skills.
I’m not sure when the 77/.357 Magnum will be introduced into Australia, but I’m sure it’ll be based on demand criteria. If you’re interested in one then I’d suggest you get hold of your local dealer to see what can be done.
