For those who are debating which .223 type auto rifle to chose I would like to tell ya from personal experience my mini will shoot any ammo you run through it.And functions with any mags you put in it.
I was on another site where they were debating on Ar's. One guy was ripping on Ar's they jam etc.Another dude sez well if you use good ammo etc they are fine. And please don't jump on me I am not criticizing Ar's hell I think I may be picking one up soon.
But if the one dude is right I don't know?
My Dad and I both heard all the crap about Mini's they only work with factory mags! They only shoot with good ammo etc.
So me being me I tested all the bullshit! Mine and the one the old man had shot flawlessly with all the ammo we took down with us. Including bear,wolf,etc steel case was not a problem.Same with magazines Ruger 5, 20,30 round mags perfect. Cheaper mags perfect. Then I pulled out the so cheap they didn't even stamp a name on em mags I knew these would jam, surprise, flawless.
So rather than being a slam on any weapon my is try out your weapon with what you will be shooting in it!
If there is some kind of collapse coming you may well find ammo but a lot of it stored away will be steel cased Russian ammo.
If your favorite tack driver won't shoot steel cased ammo still ain't a reason to get rid of it.But have something that likes anything!
Test your equipment often Know your equipment. As I say on the other blog A crisis is not the time to figure something out!
What do you think? Right on or not?
