I haven't shot any coyotes with it yet, but I really enjoy my Mini. Accurate enough for coyote, 2" at 100yds seems to be the norm with factory ammo. It's also a great plinking rifle, cheap to shoot if you reload and a little more snot that the .22lr. All that being said a quality bolt action would almost certainly be a bit more accurate, especially if you handload for it. Can't really go wrong either way.
