I had the chance to shoot a mini-14, the thing was keyholeing (bullets hitting sideways) the targets at 25 yards. A really worn barrel?

Could be the ammo as well. Depending on the rifling twist rate, heavier (longer) bullets might not be stabilized well.

We have a Mini in our armory at work that has been red lined because the barrel is horribly shot out. It keyholes at 25 yards leaving a beautiful sillouette of a bullet in the paper. Groups at 25 yards are about 12". Heavier bullets will do this too.
