My mini is an older 185 series and has a 1 in 10" twist.By handloading,i have found a decent load with 55 gr. bullets.I haven't yet tried any lighter bullets.My question is,has anyone tried 50 gr. bullets in a 1 in 10" mini?Better or worse than 55 gr? Guess that's 2 questions.::unsure:

Yes,I am positive.I have measured the twist by running a tight fitting patch in the bore.Makes 1 complete turn in 10 inches.Apparently 185 series can be either 1 in 7 or 1 in 10" depending on which barrel Ruger used.

I have shot some Horady 50 gr that have done well.
