  1. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    What I am wondering is if anyone has done a head to head comparison using the same gun and ammo only changing out the strut? A couple of slow 5 shot groups and a 30 shot group (checking for heat warp) without a strut and the same for each type of strut would probably be adequate. What prompted...
  2. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    These are the things that I have done to it. 1. Trigger job by Clark custom 2. Bedded the action myself. 3. Local smith put a brake on it. With those 3 things done I was getting at best 3 shot groups that averaged coffee saucer at 50 yds. So I broke done and got a accu-strut. and tried my hand...

    I just received my shipment of Black Hills 75 grain match HP in .223. I noticed in the fine print it says: "Important Accuracy Information: Heavy Match bullets require relatively fast rifling rates for best accuracy. A 1 in 10 or faster twist is necessary for 68 or 69 grain bullets, The 75...

    Hello all! I'm a new owner of a 580 series Ruger Mini 14 Tactical. Before purchasing my firearm I took considerable time researching problems associate with the rifle. The one area where there seemed to be indifference was the folding/collapsible stock for the tactical models... the ATI...

    :confused:I am new to the forum and very new to a mini-14 Target which should be here in a week or so. I have been reading all the post I can find on it and have a question or two in regards to handloads. I have been reloading for bolt rifles for years. My method, probably like most, is to...

    The Accu-Strut website says: "Reduces group size 50-75% for most older rifles with straight profile barrel and up to 33% for newer, tapered barrels*" So how does the performance compare between an older 580 series w/ a pencil barrel and Accu-Strut vs. a newer 580 series with the tapered...
  7. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    A few month's ago I picked up a Ranch Rifle as a sort of project gun, to see if I could turn the skinny barreled guy into a decent shooter. Well, it is, I've mounted an accurizing strut and a low power scope, and it's shooting much better than any other mini I've owned. Lately, I have been...

    I took a chance and bought a case from Wideners...$338 for 1200 rounds...seemed too cheap to pass up for M193. I posted my first experience with this ammo in my report on sighting in my scope and new gun...

  10. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I am fairly new to firearms and am planning on buying my first semi auto centerfire, my favorite design aesthetically is the M1/M14/Mini14(30) style. I however do not like the ammunition prices for 30-06 and .308, so the obvious choice is the mini 14 or 30. So far i like the mini 30 for the...

  13. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I want to get a better trigger on my Mini 14 target. Does anyone have any suggestions. I have never had any sort of trigger work done. I like the trigger on my Kimber. I know it is about 4.5-4 lbs. Does anyone have experience with a trigger shoe on a Mini? Does anyone have any...
