    Tried 'em all and fine the bolt most accurate. Of course, depends on time spent working loads, individual capability, scope/sights, and many external factors.

    I have used a follow-up shot occasionally. But, can do that about as fast with a break action.

    Makes sence, I'v always wanted to try the break action type rifles, they just seem like they would handle very well.

    I've never tried break action, so I didn't vote. I bought bolt action for my serious rifle, a .30-06, because everything I've ever seen or read indicated to me that it was absolutely the most accurate. I got a semiautomatic for a .22LR varmint-blaster, though.

    I also have a semi .22, its a savage. But it cant come close to matching the 1/2" 50 yard groups i get out of my bolt action marlin 925r with a simmons 3-9x40 optic. 100 yards i get about a 2" group, but I havent done much testing at this range as i consider 50-60 yds. a good max range to insure a clean kill.
