Like Joel and Wild rose said, In this game the controlled feed actions are not as flexible as a push feed action, the reason I would not recommend a CF action is= Every round has to be placed in the mag box and if your rifle likes longer cartridges you are stuck. and as the rounds come up from the mag box they can get damaged, also they may allow the case head to move up or down when fired
if the chamber is not very tight.
The CF action is Not any more or less accurate than a push feed, but a push feed with a center feed mag box is the best IMO of all the action types because it will not damage the round or the bullet in any way.
Another advantage to the push feed is that If you need a quick follow up shot (After empting the mag or firing the second shot if loading single, long rounds that wont fit in the mag box, all you have to do is throw a round in the action and close the bolt.
One other advantage to the push feed is that you can fill the mag box and still get one more round in the chamber, Adding one round to the capacity of the rifle.
Just My Opinion
