What are the benefits to a single shot rifle?

Reading up on some modern firearms, I was curious about what is the benefit of a single shot bolt action rifle.

To clarify, I'm talking about rifles that require you to load a round manually into the chamber after each shot, as opposed to those that are magazine fed.

Are such rifles inherintly more accurate or something? Is there a design detail that I'm missing here that would warrent such a system where second shot capabilities are hindered due to the need to manually reload after each pull of the trigger.
