I went to the range today to try out the Mini 30. Could not hold off any longer. It was windy but it was pretty much a head wind so not much deflection. I was using Tula to get on paper cheap. 5 failure to fire due to hard primers. Fired the second time through. Used the junk on the berm method to get close. 1st 2 rnds were low and left about 1 1/2" apart so I adjusted and 2nd 2 rnds were still a little low and left but still about 1 1/2" apart. they are at the bottom left of the target. I adjusted and the next 6 were shot with no additional adjustment to see what kind of group I could get. Still a little low and left but surprising from what I have seen from Mini's. I was using a Harris bipod and a Konus 2.5x32 shotgun scope. I like the reticle. This rifle may deserve a better scope. I believe the previous owner must have done some work on this rifle. The trigger is better than most I have handled and it doesnt through brass into the next county. Pretty happy right now.
