Mini 14 for home defense? If long gun was an option, go 12 gauge. It's going to be cheaper and better in every aspect. But back to the original question. Mini 14 carries energy and accuracy at a longer range. The 7.62x39 has a higher energy at a shorter range. I personally wouldn't use the mini 14 or 30 past 200 yards. They aren't the most accurate rifles.
