This is like opening up a can of worms, I know, but everybody likes a gun discussion. What do you all think it is? I shoot a Mini-14 181 series and I am addicted to all the variations there are for it (not as many as the AR); and I pack a custom .22-250 camo-dipped, and a long barrel with a smooth Mauser action. I like the Mini-14 for just about any kind of calling or hunting smaller game. The '250 is unbeatable when it comes to long range shots. Does anybody have great things to say about the lighter rounds of the .243? I haven't had the pleasure to try their varmint rounds yet.
