Pushing out to 500 yards with the Ruger Mini-14 (VIDEO)

In an exercise to test out the practical accuracy from the humble and old school Ruger Mini-14, a shooter and spotter give it a go out to the 500 mark.

Josh Mazzola and Henry Chan team up for the test from 9-Hole Reviews. The wood-stocked Mini-14 used for the test was topped with a Trijicon Accupoint 1-6x Mildot optic on a Warne mount with LaRue rings. Suppressed, the 5.56mm plinker was also fitted with an Accu-Strut bolt-on accurizing device and what looks to be a Harris bipod.

Starting at the 150-yard mark, they work on torso-sized targets using IMI M193 55-grain ammo on a breezy day.

The final analysis? Watch the footage.
