Oneoldsap, let's move to .22 rimfire rifles. Has any pump action rimfire off the shelf rifle equalled the 1/3 MOA (at worst) 50-yard accuracy of some off the shelf bolt action rifles?

Back to centerfire ones. Has any pump action centerfire off the shelf rifle equalled the 1/3 MOA (at worst) 100-yard accuracy of some off the shelf bolt action rifles?

If so, please state the make and model.

This thread isn't about rimfires BartB . You should start another thread . I've never owned a rimfire pump rifle ! I have three semi-autos and several bolts .

Thread drift -- I learned on a Remington Fieldmaster (572?) that belonged to a friend -- later my wife bought me a Remington Model 12 from about WW-1 that is still my squirrel rifle. Never shot either at paper except to check the sights, and didn't know what MOA was back when I started with them.... but I did hit what I was aiming at.

Accuracy for some of us is a "good enough" thing. If it isn't for you, well, so what?
