The Vepr in 5.56mm is made to take 5.56mm NATO (US .223), so converting to use M-16 Magazines wouldn't hurt the gun at all. This modification is fairly popular with people who have both AR-15 and AK type rifles. I would recommend this if you have clear access to AR magazines, or if you want a different look to your gun

So I live in the USA right now, and recently, I read things that a "minigun", which is a human portable version of the M61 Vulcan, is legal to own. Is that true and Why is it legal to own?

The Minigun isn't actually man portable, it's an emplacement weapon designed for vehicle mounting. 

That aside, the reason why it's legal is apparently because it went into production before some landmark gun law that prohibited full auto weapons of some kind. 

Not that this is all that useful, since it costs something like 500 dollars to fire for a minute? Something obscene.

But for people living next to it, wouldnt it be scary knowing a guy owns a gun that can cut trees?

Anybody know if it's at all safe to use civilian .308 Winchester in an M14 receiver? If this is not the case, can an M14 receiver be modified to accept a .308 winchester safely?

Shouldn't be a problem. Usually it's the other way that is an issue, i.e. using 5.56 in a .223 chambered rifle. NATO ammo is based on higher pressures and looser tolerances than civi in general, and also the higher risk of an somewhat over-charged round among the mass of ammunition being fed. I'd have to go into my books for the exact specs, but a 5.56 might not chamber in a .223 that is bench-rest tight. I think the neck is just a tad too thick and can spike pressures. It WOULD chamber in a run of the mill .223 off the shelf. Possibly to dangerous effect over time or if the construction is sub-par. That's why I usually advise people getting a plinker to buy a 5.56 chambering.
In regards to the .308, it's virtually identical to the NATO spec, so it won't matter.

So apparently, my country's military still uses Grease Guns and modified them to have stuff like pycanny rails.
