Is ther a preference for grains for the mini? I was looking to buy some lead free and I see 55gr and 70 gr.

55gr ammo should work well for your 1:9 twist barrel.

Either would run fine. 1/9 is sort of an "all-around" twist rate in this caliber, but it does slightly favor the heavier 62gr bullets. Anything from 55gr to 75gr should shoot fine.

It'll shoot sub-barn no matter what you shoot, they are consistant like that. You will be fine.
