Is the Ruger Mini Thirty a good gun?
Overall I found the performance of Ruger’s Mini-Thirty 5868 Tactical to be quite good.

Ruger advises against using steel case ammunition, but I had zero issues running it in this rifle.
Is the Mini-30 more accurate than the Mini-14?
The performance of the two rifles is almost identical. Both are reliable, well made and reasonably accurate with the exception of some of the older Mini-14s. There is some scuttlebutt that the Mini-30 is slightly more accurate due to a stiffer barrel but it would be hard to verify that without a number of them to test.

Can a Ruger Mini 30 use AK mags?

What is wrong with steel cased ammo?
The other problem with steel cased ammo is that the cases don’t expand the same way that brass cases do. This causes carbon build up between the case and the chamber wall. This build up can cause stuck cases. Sometimes these cases will stick so severely that it is difficult to remove them even with a cleaning rod.
