Bolt Action vs Semi Auto Rifles
Semi-auto rifles and long-barrel, bolt-action guns can both be considered "precision rifles". Which is better? The Loadout Room wrote: “There is an ongoing debate as to whether someone should purchase a semi-automatic rifle or a bolt-action rifle for long-range precision shooting. Typically, the bolt-action precision rifle is considered more accurate than a semi-automatic. However, this depends on numerous factors with regard to both firearm and ammunition, and modern semi-automatic rifles can be exceptionally accurate when designed with long-ranging shooting in mind.” (3)
Which is best, a semi auto or a bolt action? Ballistic Magazine said, “If you are new to rifles in general and want to get into the precision world, I recommend an entry-level bolt rifle like the Ruger Precision Rifle, Tikka T3x TAC A1 or similar. They are simple, accurate, affordable and very user-friendly.” (4)
