Mil spec brass in a Mini?

Is it ok to reload milspec brass for a Mini-14? I've read some things that indicate no. If not, why not?

Milsurp brass is fine.
If you think a mighty military force is expensive, wait 'til you see what a weak one costs.

Keep in mind that most military brass has less case capacity than commercial brass, so reduce loads accordingly.
