How many of you use a Mini-14 for hunting? How about some pics and some "braggin" stories. No matter what the game is, each story has its highlites.

Regardless of the platform, model or chambering, it's shot placement that matters most. I know a couple folks that use these for small and med game hunting although for whatever reason, most seem to believe they need the latest ultra super maxi-magnum for anything above a rabbit. :)

I have used it to with a 60gr Nosler Partitions to fill a doe tag in Florida (it is legal here). It was a quick kill on about 100 lb doe at 40 yards. Pretty normal here in NE FLA.
It is not what I would normally use in another state or high in a tree with 200yd+ visibility. I know some will hurl insults about using this caliber at all on deer but notice that I was using it for a very specific application and if a Monster Buck (yeah, right in Fla) had come into the plot My scoped 454 Casull would have been called into action.
That 60 gr Nosler partition is the only thing I would use if hunting anything bigger than a coyote.
