The 300 Blackout cartridge is really starting to hit its stride. Just about every manufacturer makes a gun in the wonder caliber, and ammunition is finally available in most big box sporting goods stores. Now it seems that the 300 BLK cartridge is starting to reach beyond the confines of the AR-15 platform, branching out into other firearms as well. The latest is Ruger’s latest Mini-14, a firearm considered so evil by Dianne Feinstein that it was specifically banned in her last proposed Assault Weapons Ban bill, but A-OK as far as California and other states with an Assault Weapons Ban is concerned. It might be a nifty choice for a lightweight hunting rifle especially for those in The Golden State, and we’ve asked for one to review. Don’t touch that dial.
