By the very nature of the action, the bolt must be able to move to eject and reload a new cartridge. With a bolt rifle, there is a camming action when closing the bolt that locks the bolt tight against the shell casing thus eliminating any movement of the casing at the time of firing. This creates a more consistent alignment of the bullet with the bore.

    Thanks for the explanation.

    While Hoss is correct remember that this is all in theory. A well made semi auto can outshoot a poorly made bolt action. The most important factor in accuracy is the quality of the firearm not the type of action. A quality semi auto will shoot very accurately.

    I shoot in a .22 league and most guys shoot spiffed up 10-22s.
    I havenít heard any of the journalists who volunteered to be waterboarded asking to have their fingernails wrenched out with pliers, or electrodes attached to their genitals.
