I recently purchased a mini 30 and encountered multiple issues with feeding and firing. I know that the mini 30 is designed for brass ammo and true to form I encountered light strikes in about 1-2 out of 10 rounds. I expected this going in but I also encountered mis-feeds and jams despite utilizing Ruger factory mags. As a result I could get no comfort with the gun and ended up selling it and purchasing an AR. I have read that the mini 14 is more reliable. I still like the platform of the rifle and want to give the mini 14 a try. Can anyone speak to a comparison of the mini 14 to the mini 30? Particularly in ammo? steel? or feeding?
