Rate of fire is over rated. You posted s good video about it a few days ago comparing the m16 to the m14. A pump is fast. The recoil will delay your next shot more than the action. The weakness is hunting rifes usually hold 5 rounds. With a 30-06 using a soft point that’s one hit, one stop though. Optics are an important tool. Someone with military experience stated recently “distance is your friend.” Kinda like having a sword in a knife fight, keep your distance and don’t get hit.
