However that being said, I got my M4 to shoot pretty damn far, not as accurately as a VSR, but about 20ft short.
I believe he is talking about an m14 not an m4.
These guns can perform pretty well in terms of accuracy, but it really depends on what's inside. I can't say they perform just as accurately as an upgrade bolt action, but they sure can compete because they have a better rate of fire since you never have to pull a bolt back.
I still prefer a bolt action though... a lot more satisfying =)
