Being able to feed a long gun and a handgun from the same box of cartridges can reduce ammo costs, and is one of the oldest, most tried-and-true shooting concepts in the industry. While the lever-action has been more often associated with that role, Ruger has recently released a line of bolt-actions that are more than capable of handling your favorite handgun loads.

The company originally released an all-weather configuration M77 Mark II bolt-action in .44 Mag. The line has since been expanded to include a model chambered in .357 Mag., which we present as the latest Gun of the Week—the Ruger 77/357 Rotary Magazine Rifle.

Watch the video below and learn all about the 77/357 from American Rifleman's Senior Executive Editor Brian Sheetz. Are you glad this classic concept has returned? Let us know in the comments section below.
