Excluding barrel size, shape, rifling, sights and just looking at the difference in performance between feed systems, single shot, box magazine and tubular feed it would seem the single shot would be best as little deformation occurs in loading the chamber. The box would be next as spring tension and clip ear edges may remove or loosen the bullet during the feeding operation. I feel the worst performer is the tubular mag system as the more cartridges loaded, the higher the spring pressure will tend to deform the bullets. I have unoaded a full tube magazine and found bullets bent out of center alignment. Damaged bullets will not fly straight and result in larger groups.

In my case, accuracy is not so much the arrow as it is the Indian. . .

However, to answer your question -- since most of my current rifles are tube-fed -- my Henry Golden Boy is very accurate at 50 yards, my Browning BL-22 almost as good, and my Marlin 60 holds its own with both of them.

However, to echo what Rick-F said, the one that has impressed me the most is a recently-acquired Winchester Model 72 -- if I had to make one shot count, that's the rifle I'd grab. . .
