The Target Mini with the bull will only shoot 223
Thanks for the feedback LiveSteam. Still not sure if I'm gonna drop the ball on it but damn that was a nice rifle to shoot and hearing your input about it's longevity makes it even more tempting. Just an awesome gun to have strapped on your back when your in the woods for defense, not legal for hunting in my neck of the woods.
