The Mini-30 failed to impress us on several levels. Covered in the video is its awful reliability, mediocre accuracy, lack of versatility, and high cost. Several different loads were tried in both desert and range testing. Better options exist in the form of the many excellent AK variant rifles exist. They too are possessing of quirks but you can count on them with your life. It would seem its 7.62x39mm chambering has transformed the excellent and time proven Mini-14 into something else. After shooting the Mini-30 we would not put it into any serious POU and we were astonished that Ruger markets this carbine with these known problems.
