Is your Mini 14 Stainless Steel Finish rough

My Mini 14 Stainless Steel (prefix 584) has a very rough finish. I watched the Ruger factory video series on You-Tube and there you see the workers tumbling and "polishing" the receivers. Frankly, my receiver looks like they skipped/forgot those steps.

I wouldn't send it in for a cosmetic issue. Ring the mini out with your preferred ammo. If the function and accuracy are acceptable (after 200 rnds of break -in) then I would work on the finish myself. With the heat hardening process they use, I wouldn't worry about hurting your mini.
