Hey Cajungeo...yes BB is fine. Say, after I break-in my Ranch Mini, (by the way what's a good break-in routine?); I plan to 'accessorize' it some. I'd like to see the differences in accuracy. Some of the things I've read about here really seem to improve it's performance.
Future plans are: 1. bedding the stock, 2. installing a smaller gas bushing kit, 3. a trigger job, 4. muzzle brake, and 5. firelap the barrel after a couple of hundred rounds?
Lastly, I've read a lot about scopes, and was considering a Burris Fullfield II 3-9x40...'Bear Basin' has 'em for $187. Not too bad, and the specs on eye relief, etc. look good, and it seems to be a rugged scope.
I live in FW, TX, but am on a company assignment right now. I'll get back home next month on a business trip, and to receive my 'baby', then start the break-in process.
BTW, what do you recommend of the 'future plans', and where do I get the work done? Seems to me I saw where someone said a guy in Arlington, TX does some mini-14 work. Like you, I don't want to spend a lot of $$$ accessorizing the mini. I'm only interested in plinking mostly...so .5 MOA at 100 yds isn't all that important, but I'd like to get better than what factory is.
