Yes, I bought my first mini 14 in 1984...how about you?

You hunt/shoot Mulies in the head with a .223 @ 400yds? - that's incredible marksmanship. How did you manage to acheive that level of accuracy ? I see many custom bolt guns that can't do that. Please post some pics of your incredible kill, I'm sure you took a picture or two?
Heres my mini 14!!

Default Mina 14

I have a 180 series mini 14 and a target mini. The 180 is a great gun but not as accurate as the target model. I own several guns from a M1A national match, to a Ruger #1, 7MM-STW. I feel the target mini holds its own against any of them.
I believe you. I own one too.

Default Nice shot....

Don't let him get under your skin he is only throwing crap at you to get under your skin. Those of us that own one no how good they really are. The way you load the bullets make a huge difference on accuracy too. The gun is only as good as the person holding it. That speaks well for you and not for him IMO.

Thanks Deadman1. i love long distance shooting and hunting! and for this buck i actually walked a 100 yards farther away from him. i was going for a 400 yard head shot but at 380 yard he start going back after his does so i decided before i missed out id better take him. nothing big or anything just some meet for the freezer on the second to last day before season was over.

I didn't call anybody a liar, if I did, I'd do it to your face, can't do that kind of thing on the internet. Thanks for posting the pic, I knew you would have a picture of that kind of shot. Not trying to get under anyone's "skin" either. Just wanted to see it. Not many people I know hunt deer with a .223. In fact, it is illegal to use a .22 caliber rifle during deer gun season in many states I believe. Must be legal in Montana? Thanks for sharing. Hope you will calm down a bit.

Its legal to here in the great state of Montana,
no hard feelings it just when your calling for pictures of everything i say and you telling me that the 223 can't achieve the distances im telling you i "can" achieve it starts to seem to me that your challenging what i say. kind of rude IMO.

oh and that isnt a hard shot to accomplish by the way. i have taken animals from a lot longer distances then 380 yards.
i live for long distance shooting and that's what im good at so thats how i hunt
