    Where exactly is the caliber/chamber markings on the rifle? I have looked it over and can't find it. The only place I couldn't look was under the top hand guard cause I have a scope mounted and can't remove it without removing the scope. I'm just curious is it 223 or 5.56 nato? Thanks

    Should be right on the heel of the receiver - Ruger Mini-14 Cal. .223" IIRC. However, Ruger claims that Minis have 5.56 chambers.

    Thanks Vanfunk

    It was hard to see under the scope. I had to use a flashlight. I knew it was safe to shoot 5.56. I read that in the manual.
