looking for suggestions. i am between either red dot or actual scope
 
will shoot probably no more than 200 yards, light hunting for coyote here and there.
 
i know these rifles aren't super accurate, so i wasn't sure if i should get the red dot or actual scope.
 
input please?
 
TIA

I would probably get a low range variable of some sort.

I am not sure what your price range is, but Weaver V3 is the cheapest good choice, and it goes up in price from there.

For that weapon, I would go with Aimpoint or Trijicon.  With a little practice and experimentation, I believe you will find accuracy is better than expected.

The mini 30 should shoot a group no larger than about 2 inches at 100 yds or 4 inches at 200 so it is plenty accurate for those distances and even a bit further.  When you start talking about hunting coyotes I have to ask are you planning any night hunts. I just got back in from hunting coyotes at night over snow. If that is the case the answer is put an aimpoint on in and enjoy it.  If you dont hunt at night get the low power variable. I like the Leupold 1.5-5x20 VX3.

11419 Aimpoint 9000L 30mm Red Dot Sight                                                                                       Aimpoint 9000L 30mm Red Dot Sight

I'm thinking this mount will work but be sure to ask before ordering.

You could also get Ruger brand 30mm mounts and RUGER  may trade out with you if you just got the gun and it has one inch mounts. ASK
