  1. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    After cleaning my mini 30 (583) today and wondering the entire time why this rifle will not shoot steel ammo. I think this may be a solution and if anyone has any feedback on whether you think this would work or why it wouldn't work I would appreciate it. I have noticed that with the tula ammo...
  2. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    Most recently, I determined with help from people here on the board, that I was pushing too much bullet down the barrel; I'd been shooting various Nosler, Hornady and Sierra 150 grain bullets and had numerous FTEjects and a stovepipe or two. The extractor, in all cases has been doing its job...
  3. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I have a 2010 Mini 30 that I took to the range back when I bought it and fired no more than three rounds out of ten of Wolf / Golden Dragon Ammo. I put it in the closet. After years of googling, and much thought I am convinced this is a matter of checking and possibly adjusting the strike...

  6. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    So I had some time today and using the firing pin gauge I got from Brownells, I measured the protrusion on my Mini 14 original factory pin. It came out as 0.040". I measured it twice to be sure. Has anyone else measured their Mini 14's firing pin protrusion? This measurement is noteworthy to me...
  7. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I just picked up a used mini30 at a gun show; and took it to the range on the way home. With German made steel case ammo, it just goes click. Rounds have dimpled primers, but not as deeply dimpled as SKS or AK. I also tried brass military rounds with sealed primers, about half of them fired...
