I am glad to see somewone else using the silver bear ammo. My Mini 30 has had zero issues also. The Wolf military is the worst for me with no fire issues.
The Black Box works good and have piled up the deer and a few pigs up with the 154gr SP Wolf for the past 6 or 8 years. I am switching to the 125 SP for deer this year from Silver Bear to see how they perform. Good Report.
I have some MFS 125 SP (100 rds)I just picked up but haven't tried it yet.

The Mini-Thirty Tactical has been out twice more since my last post. According to my range journal, I have fired 404 more rounds, bringing the total number through the rifle to over 1,300. I shot 294 rounds of Yugo surplus with zero failures of any type, and 110 rounds of Silver Bear, also without failures. The rifle has been cleaned and lubed after each trip to the range. Accuracy was on par with previous visits.

My goal is to get 2,500 Berdan primed rounds through the rifle before summer. I have a couple cases of the Yugo surplus. I'd also like to run a cold-weather test, leaving the rifle outside overnight in sub-zero weather, then take it to the range and see how she does the next morning.

Will bring my camera with me next time I go.
