with 15c milsurp ammo, and has 25% less felt recoil than does a similar wt bolt action. That means that you get to shoot a LOT more, and thus, are probably a far bettern field shooter than the guys who have to spend 50c a shot, or waste time loading 150 rds an hour at the bench. The autoloader groups 1.5 MOA, if it's set up properly, and that is plenty of accuracy for realistic big game hunting. It offers you the fast followup shot, if you need to finish off a cripple, and it has self defense capability, which no bolt action offers much of, at all. If you need to mess up a dog pack that's chasing livestock, you have the ability to do it, too. Not just miss one and scare them, like a bolt action user has to settle for.
