Not sure if this is the right place for this question or not.

I recently bought a Mini 14 that has the serial prefix of 181. The Ruger site shows this as being made in the early 1980's. My question here is can it handle shooting the 5.56 nato rounds? I know the AR-15's are chambered in the 5.56 round and can shoot both 5.56 and .223 rounds. I've heard conflicting arguments on this topic. Some say it can, and others say it can't. Looking for feedback from anyone who may have done it and so on, and so on.

Thanks
