Whats a better long range shooter, a bolt action or a non bolt action? whats the + and - to them both? Are bolt action rifles alot? I want to get a 10/22 for my first ever gun but i really like bolt action rifles. What i want a gun for is shooting ranges and targets, not a hunter or plan on ever hunting. for a first gun and a long range shooter should i stick with a 10/22 or should i look for a bolt action?
