Default Which bullet?

Anyone know how heavy a bullet a 184 series will handle? Have a bunch of 63 gr SS 109s and would like to use them in the Mini not the AR. Thanks

You have some testing to see if your gun likes a bullet weight of one better than the other. Right now is seams shoot what ever you can find, 223 or 5.56 is scarce. Some minis do well with 45 gr others like the heavier 62 gr.

I would certainly try a few to see how they shoot in your particular rifle.
