Here is a vid of me dumping 50 rounds of 22lr in the back yard. Time it then see how long it woudl take to fire off 1000 rounds. The rifle does have a suppressor on it so it runs faster. Cyclic rate goes up when you use a suppressor due to back pressure.
Well your you-tube vid ran for all of 6 seconds. You can burn up a lot of 22 ammo at that rate.
