I've been away for awhile so I know my question will probably be redundant but I don't want to search every post ever made. I would like to ask those who own a Mini-30 their opinion of that model. I have owned several Mini-14's in years gone by. I presently own a AK-47 but miss owning a Mini and would like to buy one eventually to go with the AK. I figure the Mini-30 may be the best of both worlds as I can keep the ammo purchases down to a minimum instead of having to stock up of a multitude of calibers. I'm guessing it might be a little picky with the steel cased Russian stuff but would do fine with brass case.
