Let's Hope He Listened To Jeff

The .357 cartridge is not a wise choice for grizzlies, whether in a pistol or a rifle.  If you are contemplating one of these fine little Ruger bolt actions, you need to recognize the limitations.  Out of a rifle, the .357 has less power than a 30-30, which is a mighty fine deer cartridge, and a pretty good black bear cartridge.  The 30-30 has killed grizzlies, but if you do a little research you will find that the .30-06 is the minimum recommended for the big bears.  
Go revisit Jeff Quinn's review if you have one of these rifles on your wish list.  It is a good close-range deer rifle, and can be loaded down for popping squirrels and rabbits, but big bears need bigger medicine.
