I bet it will shoot fantastic in the Mini.........although the 55 grain bullets are a little light for hunting imo.........the top bullets marketed to hunting are all in the 60-77 grain range .
Let us know how you do in your hunt

I think if I was going to use a mini 14 for deer or hogs, I would go with a heavier bullet like the 62 grain Federal Fusion or 64 grain Speer Gold Dot. Maybe even 75 grain Gold Dot depending on the twist rate of your mini 14.

The post is asking about the Barnes TSX 55gr bullet. It's a solid copper (lead free and non toxic) projectile. The less dense material makes them longer than a lead core bullet of the same weight. The toughness (increased penetration and weight retention) of mono-metal projectiles mimics heavier lead core bullets. The Barnes bullets are pricey, and not all rifles shoot them accurately. With others like the 60gr Partitions they offer owners of slow twist rifles something they can use on medium game. My personal minimum is a .243 for medium game hunting, but I have some 60gr Full Boar loads for when I am carrying a Rem 700 .223 for coyote/ bobcat and see a pig.

Thanks guys for your opinions! My mini has a 1:9 twist and according to Ruger, it shoots well for 55gr ammo, but what about a 62 gr?

The 1:9" twist was adopted for 62gr bullets.
