Default Optics for Mini 14

I plan to get a Mini 14, Target Model with harmonic stabilizer before fall, seems like I might actually be able to now that the rush is over. I'm looking for recommendations for a scope. Don't plan to shoot competitively except against some of my buds, and if I hunt it will be for Coyotes.

I have been a Leupold fan and have several, but don't want to just go that way because I always have. I tend towards high magnification and was thinking about a 4X-14X Var X III.

Ideas appreciated,

Thanks

I've always been a Nikon fan. Have several from the prostaff, monarch to a monarch gold. All of them are bullet proof so far. Nothing against Leupold(I have one of their rangefinders) its just a ford/chevy/dodge thing.

The first is a higher power but it has a 30mm tube. The second is close to your mag needs,but it is a front AO and it is a 1" tube. The first will show 17cal holes well past 100yds....22"s should be 200 plus.

suggest you consider putting a smaller gas bushing in as well a using a buffer for the rear of the bolt - Minis are ROUGH on scopes !
