Help Us, Internet Kenobi. You're Our Only Hope...

Friend Brad_in_MA has a problem. He's trying to find a video online, and is having no luck. Here's his description:
I am trying to find a video.  It sjows some German fellow hunting wild boar with a high end bolt gun.  He shoots piggies on the run and hits every one.  Weerdbeard or Borepatch may have linked to it. IIRC the gun is some sort of 7mm magnum.  I thought Alan should see it. 
Beats the holy hell out of me. Best I could find was this, and it looks like the video has been taken down. Anyone have any idea on what Brad's looking for? I know why he wants Alan to see it - Alan's got a flippin' SWEET Weatherby 7mm Magnum that is simply amazing to shoot. I got a chance to shoot it at the last Northeast Bloggershoot (I shot it twice: once to kick my shoulder out of joint, and once to put it back in place...)

Oh, and as a side note, be very careful when Googling videos of boar hunts - you will lose hours if you're not careful...

That is all.

Jay,

That's the one !!!! Too bad the video is down. But now I can search on Sauer 202 and see what comes up.

I shot the Weatherby Mark V, and Alan's Endfield No. 5 "jungle carbine" and my Marlin 60 on Saturday. We were launching 154 grain pills from the Mark V. Spec shows they leave the barrel at nearly 3,300 FPS -- that's 500 FPS faster than than 148 grain slugs from my Mosin. Steel at 200 yards didn't stand a chance. Because of the bullet speed, we almost heard the "clang" before the KABOOOOOOM of the rifle. Almost. This contrasted quite nicely with the "delay" from shooting steel at 100 yards with my Marlin 60.

To follow-up on a prior post, after shooting three or four tubes of ammo through my Marlin 60, Alan is completely sold on getting .22 rifle, especially in semi auto. For those who replied to the prior post - Rimfire Rifle Roundup - Thank You.

Yep, accuracy IS kinda necessary over there, since there is no 'safety net'...

Love my Nikko action in .270 Wby. Contrary to popular perception, they can be quite accurate. The load mine prefers fires a 140gr slug at 3375 and groups 3/8". Welcome to how hunting gets done in the wide open spaces of Texas.

Ken,

My buddie's Weatherby Mark V in 7mm Weatherby magnum can group "minute of nickel" at 100 yards from a cold barrel. Similar performance as your .270 Win -- the weatherby specs to 3340 fps with 139 grain bullets.
