I have an Armalite in 7.62x39 AR platform that I just took a deer with. Great rifle and I have to use 10 rounds mags for hunting. I owned a mini 30 many years ago and accuracy was terrible. If you are only looking Mini or SKS I would go SKS since mine has great accuracy and is a smooth shooting gun.

SKS. None of the light strike problems that haunt the Mini 30 and if my experience with both is any indication, the SKS will be more accurate.
The only thing muzzle energy ever killed was time that could have spent shooting meat and learning something about how bullets work.

I've owned a Mini-30 for over 25 years. Scoped it and killed deer with it. Still have it. My newest is dedicated 7.62x39 upper on my ar-15 lower. Scoped its a deer killer too. A bolt gun would make a good hunting rifle too. To me the military stuff is not as accurate and not interesting at all.
