Wouldn't a bolt action rifle be better, if one was looking for high amounts of accuracy? I love my 10/22T, but its still just a semi-auto. The best
rifle I have ever shot was a Remington 700 bolt action with a heavy barrel. It shot five rounds into the same hole at 300 yds with hand loaded ammo to
better match the rifle.
I would think using an AK/M-4/ect would be more of a close combat rifle, ie somewhere within 100yds or less. Who cares what it does outside that
range, a non semi-auto would be better at that point, and far more reliable. A good survial set up would be 3 guns, a .22lr, a .223, and a .308 or
larger. I don't know any gun that would replace the need of 3 guns except a Dragunov sniper rifle, but you would still need a .22 of some sort for
the smaller game.
Anyway, whatever you get, make sure you shoot it alot.Practice makes perfect.Also, keep in mind that a .22lr mimicks a .308 at twice the distance as
far as ballistics in the air goes. So make sure you have a 22 just to keep up on marksmanship without breaking the bank.
