I am thinking of moving up from my Mini-30 to a Mini 6.8. I also have a Mini-14 Tactical for SHTF and a converted Saiga AK for 7.62x39 blasting. I have a Redfield scope on my Mini-30 that would go to the 6.8. My feeling is I might be more inclined to use it for whitetail next year over my Savage .308. Nothing wrong with the Mini-30, but I'll get a bit more range out of the 6.8 for sure. Now I know the ammo is much more expensive in 6.8, but again,my Mini-30 is not a blaster, I pretty much limit it to the 10 rnd Promags which I see are now also available for the 6.8! Thinking hard on it.
