The original Luger cartridge, developed by Georg Luger and Hugo Borchardt of the German munitions company DWM, and introduced on 1898, the 7.65 Parabellum, also known as .30 Luger or 7.65x21, this was the first round to fit the iconic Luger 1900 semi automatic pistol. In order to come to the final result, Luger shortened Borchardt's prototype cartridge, resulting in a narrower magazine to be inserted into the grip, thereby improving handling. The shorter cartridge was also more easily chambered with a shorter stroke, and the Luger 1900 pistol passed trials for the Swiss Army and entered service between 1900 and 1949. The smaller diameter 7.65 bullet head results in a distinctive bottle neck shape. The .30 Luger was the precursor to the more famous 9x19mm Parabellum which was requested by the German Army which wanted a larger calibre to be made available in the Luger pistol frame. It benefits from a milder recoil and excellent accuracy. Price is for ONE cartridge only. Rounds must be sent with Courier.
