Cowboy Different Rifle Action Accuracy Topic

What is the most accurate rifle action out there? I'm mostly interested for hunting, but off the bench would be fine here to illustrate the point.

Most people will say that a bolt action is the most accurate rifle a person can get, generally speaking.

Wouldn't a single shot rifle be just as accurate if not more then?

What about a pump action rifle? Nothing is moving when the rifle is fired, at least not that I know of.

Generally speaking most people agree that semi-autos aren't as accurate as the kinds listed above, even though several are incredibly accurate. I don't want to start an arguement over some autos are more accurate than others.

I know we could all get caught up in argueing one gun makers brand over the other but let's just keep it simple.

How would you rate these rifle actions for accuracy? (1 being the best)

1.) Auto
2.) Pump
3.) Single shot
4.) Lever Action
5.) Bolt Action

I'm particularly interested in seeing how accurate most people think a pump rifle is compared to these others.
