Hi Guys/gals

I'm thinking of buying a bolt action goose neck rifle, like the Ruger American Ranch in .223/5.56. Does anyone know if the magazines are the same or completely different from the Mini 14 target mags? I had a look at the photos but can't really tell if similar. Law changes where I live make semi auto's a problem but I really like Ruger and was just wondering.

The Ranch in 7.62x39 uses Mini 30 mags, but the Ranch in 5.56/223 uses either the rotary mag or an AR mag (depending on the model you buy). They don't make a 5.56/223 that uses a Mini 14 mag.

That kind of blows. I was sort of dreaming of getting one, just for that reason. After I read the 7.62 took Mini mags, I got kind of excited.
