Are there a lot of advantages with bolt action rifles, because the most rifles I see/know are bolt action(and semi automatic seems more handy/practical to me)

Its purely mission dependent. If you are talking about stalking and killing a target, then yes, bolt actions have advantages, as do semi-autos. Just a matter of picking your priorities.

The main bolt action advantages are:
Easier to make more accurate
reliability
non ejecting brass all over the hill side.
less moving parts

Also quicker for follow up shots, and in case Mr Murphy shows up and you get into a firefight a little better for that. Like mel said mission dependant.

But the most important is chicks dig semi-auto's :lol:
