mini-14 tactical rifle

  1. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    I took the new Mini Model 5846 to the range today. It was not pretty at first. How much break in does a mini need? Ejection/loading problems. The trigger guard would fall down causing malfunctions. After 20 to 25 rounds it all started working right. Newt
  2. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    In an earlier post I wrote about the fact I could not get my brand new Mini-14 to zero on the iron sights. Even with the rear sight peep drifted all the way to the right, it still shot a bit to the left of the bull. I packed it up and sent it back to Ruger on their dime. That was two weeks ago...

    Hello, I am thinking that I would like to buy and mount an A1 Optic Halo Red Dot Reflex sight on my 1 year old Mini-14 .223 Tactical rifle. It says that it mounts to a 7/8" Weaver style rail or mount. I'm not sure what that is and how it would mount on my gun. I have a lot of guns but don't...

    Bought a Mini 14 Tactical. The one with the 16 inch long 1 in 9 twist barrel. Which RCBS die is recommended. Small base, regular base. I'm confused. I've never loaded rifle bullets and there seem to be more decisions than with handgun bullets. Any other pointers regarding loading .223 is...

    I bought a new Mini-14 Tactical Rifle in .223 a couple of weeks ago, and am getting ready to reload some ammo for it. What are the 'tried and true' loads for this rifle? I realize it's not a sub moa rifle by any means, but I want something that will get it in the ballpark of a bullseye at...
