Depends on the use.
Bolt actions are able to be lighter and/or more accurate for the price. (Semi auto rifles can be very accurate, it is just more difficult/expensive)

Semi auto allows faster follow up shots.

So, for military, law enforcement, self defense, pest control of herd/pack animals, or fast-paced shooting sports, semi auto has significant advantages. For ultra-precision shooting sports or hunting (with lots of hiking), bolt guns have advantages.
For casual target shooters, a bolt gun will slow you down and probably save on ammo costs, haha.
