Re: Another Mini 14 question
On this topic of Mini-14 accuracy, I've owned several (not target models) and none have been accurate compared to other semi's that I own in that caliber.
I also frequent another forum that's motorcycle related with a number of shooters there, and many have laid claim to Mini's being VERY accurate!
Perhaps their and my definition of accuracy is different, but if a 'service type' rifle won't hold 1.5MOA with good factory ammo, it's not accurate IMO.
My HK does .75, and I've seen AR types do the same, so I don't think I'm unrealistic.
I made several attempts to get a Mini Ranch to shoot well, spent time and money for naught, as I couldn't get the damn thing to do better than 2", with over a dozen loads.
In my experience, it's a small number of Mini's out there that can shoot to Mil-spec, and since that's what it's based on, I wouldn't call them accurate.
Better off with an AR type, if you ask me.
You are what you do, when it counts.
