Its taken with a 6.8 @ about 30 yards with a digital night vision scope. I love the record capability of that thing!
Nice vid, but I wouldn't call that hunting. That's more pest elimination. That automatic feeder is a sure way to get arrested or cited for poaching while hunting some types of game. Though I do see your point.
A well trained rifleman could duplicate those results with a bolt-action repeater, but it would take a lot of practice. More practice than most are willing to put in (and the really dedicated guys are the "mad minute" types who like to play with Enfields). The semi-auto used in the vid does allow for faster shots on multiple targets for most shooters. I grant you that.
