Ruger 77/44 Capacity

The Ruger 77/44 is chambered in .44 magnum and feeds from an internal 4-round magazine.  Due to it being bolt-action, it can safely fire .44 Special ammo without any modifications allowing users to shoot softer-recoiling rounds. 
Measuring 38.5 inches long with an unloaded weight of 5.2 pounds, the Ruger 77/44 offers its users a lightweight, durable and fully functional platform capable of handling everything from varmint control to deer hunting.  The lack of protruding edges does well to prevent the gun from getting caught on brush and dense vegetation.

Ruger 77/44 Ergonomics

The Ruger 77/44 is built into a traditional stock that gives it the same handling qualities as any other typical hunting rifle.  This allows users to quickly pick the rifle up and know how to use it without any consideration for a learning curve.  The grip and forend are checkered exactly where you would expect, and the center of gravity is located at the front of the receiver.

Ruger 77/44 Fit & Finish

Ruger makes some of the most durable rifles on the market by hardening their metal components to unbelievably strong levels.  This is seen in their Mini-14 series of rifles and their pistols, and the 77/44 is no different.  Stainless-steel and high-carbon steel receivers, bolts and barrels are all hardened to prevent damage from weather and wear, and carbon steel components are all deeply blued to prevent damage from weather and wear.
