This is a five shot group at 100 yds

I went to the range today, this is the first time I have ever shot the rifle.

I was using winchester white box 45gr JHP
Ruger Mini 14 Target
Bushnell troghy 3x9

what you AR guys don't have anything to say, you guys sure slammed the mini an awful lot in the past, and I agree the previous minis were crap when it came to accuracy.

But, now it's a whole new ball game. I just wonder what it would do with hand loads to bad I don't reload.

I already said something, but that is a good group. Looks like my second best load.

If either of my Mini-14's would shoot like that, I never would have bought an AR.
You have a definite winner there.

That's good but to decide if it is a sub MOA rifle, we need to see the worst 5 shot group. If the worst 5 shot group is not over 1" it is a sub MOA rifle.

Ah a non believer I knew one would come out of the wood works soon. I will get right on that jack it may be a few days before I get back to the range though. This was shooting off a picnic table resting on make shift shooting sticks.

So were there other groups shot? Or did you only shoot 5 rounds? I don't know that you want to mix up the pot with the Mini 14 stuff though.

yes there were other groups shot, but I did not keep the the targets. I was also shooting them up with other guns this was the only one that I just shot the mini at. I also shot Federal 55gr jhp they also grouped sub moa. the winchester ballistic silvertips opened up just a litte over 1"

SOLD! I'm going to get one now. I love the mini 14 it just isn't all that accurate. If people are getting these type of results then, I will have to try it myself. Sportmens has one for 775$ And it comes with rings. I guess for that price, I can put 300 bones worth of ammo down range to make up the price of an AR.
