Welcome aboard. there might not be much Ruger specific info here for you but all you have to do is ask and I bet you will get an answer along with much of the info here is general to all 6.8s. I think this is the perfect round for the Mini. More power then its big brother but in the small package as the 5.56. Whats not to like. The 7.62 mags also work for the 6.8 so you can use the longer mags for it.
