Don't know what your intended use is but I went this route:
Ruger 77/357 and 4-inch Stainless GP 100
I love lever guns. Got a Marlin 1894 Cowboy Limited in .45 Colt (and a New Vaquero to go with it), and a Winchester '94 .30-30. That being said, I got the above stainless combo because I think those two guns could stand up to extended use in adverse conditions and continue to function. My lever guns are good guns, but I don't think they'd like being out in the rain and mud for extended periods. I might still get a .357 lever gun anyway though (if I can ever find a nice one).
