      shooting any given caliber in a manual action is 2-4 times more fun per round than a semi-auto.

    Larry Thorne used a springfield rifle in Vietnam.

    Probably had a hard time adjusting from the winter war.

      He used a bolt action rifle as a standard infantry rifle in Vietnam? No way what’s the source?

    Cost, preference etc. bolt action remains very functional. Single shot/break action with no internal magazine are also still very common.

    Evolution of new firearms does not render other firearms extinct.

    Too many of the new generation has only shot semi autos; they've never even touched a bolt action. This is why we're seeing lowered marksmanship standards everywhere.
    Millennials and Gen Z don't value their shots they need to learn to take their time

    because guaranteed death from 1 shot is more important than magazine capacity

      its more expensive to produce a high power cartridge semi auto rifle, so bolt actions have their place there
      that said, a semi auto 308 like an fal is still vastly better than a bolt action, and is easily one of the best semi auto rifles there is, but its expensive as hell compared to a $300 durr gun

      moronic reasoning, for hunting deer and anything smaller yes it matters but enough studies show that people often take a follow up shot to kill no matter the caliber, and big game like moose or bear take even more

    The four muhs of the bolttard;
    1.) muh accuracy (the bolttard does not need to hit anything 2k yards away, functionally irrelevant and a sure sign of delusion)
    2.) muh weight (the bolttard is so weak he can't carry one extra pound to use an automatic action)
    3.) muh suppressors (the bolttard will never be in a scenario where he will need to use a suppressed gun, he even uses supersonic rounds which means he needs hearing protection either way)
    4.) muh hunting LARP (the bolttard believes he's in some picturesque slice of the olden days where he must march into the forest with a weathered rifle and heroically fight for his dinner)

      Post your AR with a suppressor and your nods. If you don’t have them you have no room to talk.

      Also 8/10 bait. Well done

    Cheaper, simpler, more reliable, hunting laws, gun laws, preference/taste, better for rimmed cartridges, better for magnum/weird cartridges, easier to disassemble and clean, etc.

    A ton of different reasons, but mostly because they still sell.

    What about detachable mags vs. internal mags?

    Detachable is objectively better, correct?

      Pretty much, though most detachable mags aren't flush-fit. If I'm carrying a rifle hunting, then I do want the mag to be flush to facilitate reciever carry. Other than that, the only other argument I've heard for internal mags is that you can't lose it, which is a Black person-tier straw-clutching argument considering you can just never remove your detachable mag if you're so moronic that you'd lose it.

    Listen here you absolute moron. When SHTF the only thing that matters is reliability. Do you, in your infinite homosexualry, know how the proper pressure needed in a reciprocating gas system? Because if you don't you're gonna blow your shit covered fingers off. Sure ar parts are common enough, but if you can't fix it yourself you're gonna be trading your already sore ass hole (from fricking your boyfriend) for a real man to fix it. Bolt, pump, and single action guns are so fricking simple that even you, with your obvious mental moronation and homosexualry, could figure out how to fix it. You must be the poorest wienersucker on the planet, because you're supposed to own both.
