Yes, at the one and only 3-gun match I've ever shot. Unfortunately, I had to use some shoddy, no-name, picked-up-at-a-gun show magazines, and it would not even feed the first round from them. Fortunately, one really nice guy allowed me to shoot his SR556 for the match. (Due to the fact that the Mini had never actually chambered a round, it was not considered "changing rifles mid-match.") Unfortunately, his rifle (which was a joy to shoot, by the way) jammed on him later in the afternoon.
