I have a mini 14 and it's a blast to shoot, Although I'm thinking about adding a mini 30 (7.62 x 39) to my collection, One of the guys at the gun store was saying that he thinks that cheap ammo (I.E. Silver bear and all that kinda cheap) will hurt the barrel, that's pretty much all I've shot outta the mini 14, shoots great, can those rounds hurt the barrel?? also, does anyone have one and can they tell me how they feel about the gun, seems like it'd be something great to take a beating if it needed to. Originally I was looking at the 308 Scout (ruger) but it's not that easy to come by in CA and I don't imagine a scope with That much of an eye relief being in-expensive (still seems kinda new). Mini 30 price tag is about 750, probably 850 out the door, is that an ok price, seems pretty much the norm. Need to make a decision before July 10 of next year, gotta a baby on the way!!! (totally pumped up about that). Time to get toys before it's not an option!!!
