What I found with four "skinny Minnies": They all were extremely reliable about the first shot going to the desired point of aim. They all gave three-shot groups of about 1.5 MOA with a Weaver K4 on top.
For a hunter's truck gun, they're great. And, a good walking-around .223 for a hunter who's interested in jackrabbits and coyotes.
For defense, they're very reliable--assuming you have decent magazines. I never had any sign of a problem with cycling. And they'll hold "minute of torso" all day long--which is as good as one might ever need for actual defense, rather than attack at a distance.
