.30 Luger

Called the 7.65mm Parabellum in most European countries, the 30 Luger was introduced in 1900 by the German firm DWM as the first cartridge the new Luger semiautomatic pistol was chambered for. Of bottleneck design, the 30 Luger is probably best described  as a shortened version of the slightly older .30 Borchardt, a pistol that evidently proved inspirational to Georg Luger while he was developing a firearm that would eventually og on to become famous among friend and foe alike. Due to the large number of handguns once manufactured in this chambering, .30 Luger ammunition is still available to U.S. shooters from Remington and Winchester, and to European shooters from Sako, Lapua, GECO, Fiocchi. Both American firms list a 93 grain full metal jacket bullet at a muzzle velocity of 1220 fps. Muzzle energy is listed as 305 foot pounds, virtually the same as the 9mm Parabellum loaded with a 115 grain bullet.
