Re: Savage mod 10 vs Browning BLR
Nobody ever said they were. and yes, you can assume a bolt action rifle will always the more accurate choice. Bolt action design is simple, ridgid, and provides plenty of footprint to solidly bed to a stock to so you can leave the barrel floated. Not so much with leverguns, falling blocks, tip ups, where the buttstocks bolt to the rear of the actions and the forestock attaches via dovetail slots and band clamp or fore-end nut.. or semi autos, though some semi autos ( such as AR-15s and 10s, and well tuned M1As and M1 Garands) are quite accurate and can be compared to similarly tuned bolt actions with neglegible difference in accuracy potential.
But bottom line.. The leveraction design just doesnt have the accuracy potential, by design, that a bolt action does.. No matter how you cut it or how much you want to argue it..
It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 3 for proper trigger squeeze.
The latest caliber or gear is no substitute for experience and skill. Rifles and cartridges don't make hits -- shooters do.
