I bought a Ruger 77 Mk II chambered for 7x57mm last year.
When I picked it up from the LGS, a couple employees looked at me like I was completely insane and one counter monkey, err... clerk, actually made a comment about how 'old, slow, and obsolete' it was, before mumbling something about 'seven mag'.
The shop owner and I cracked smiles, ignoring the poor, poor fellow that has been eaten up by modern marketing.

They're still around.
They just don't get much discussion - especially in print.


I'm building a .17-223 upper for my varmint AR, right now. Yet another wildcat to feel out and dial in in a semi-auto. You'd think I'd learn my lesson eventually...
