An AR may be in .223 or in 5.56mm. You CAN shoot .223 in a 5.56. Would NOT reccomend 5.56 in a .223.

And I am NOT a lawyer- but what I little I knew of CA law on ammo dealt with handgun ammo, and I think THAT got thrown out by a judge a year ago.

Mini-14's are chambered to accept either .223 or 5.56 ammo.

Vikingdad,
At this time you can still do private ammo sales in Kalifornia. I don't know what powder Federal is using in their .223 ammo, but your problem is with gas pressure. The pressure curve is such that pressure has already dropped to a point at the barrel gas port, that it is not sufficient to operate the action fully........


Jim............

Ruger has both listed for the Mini, http://ruger.com/products/mini14RanchRifle/models.html

The handgun ammo restriction was thrown out because the description is ambiguous since many manufacturers make rifles that shoot "handgun" calibers and handguns that shoot rifle calibers.

That makes it more challenging. Besides, I wouldn't want to shoot an unarmed man!

The powder must be a fast burning one then? What you say makes sense though.
