I don't know why pistol caliber rifles call to me so. Only had a chance to try one . It was a 357 chambered lever . Really liked it. Yes I'd buy one and it would be 357. The option of 38 also is a big selling point for me.
A Ruger bolt gun in .357 max was something I've investigated in the past. With $ it's certainly doable. Having a 77/41 was also looked into. Content with a couple Ruger SRM Blackhawks, a Competitor and a Handi Rifle in Max for now.
