7.65 Parabellum (Luger) DWM K 471 K headstamp


It is a rimless bottleneck pistol round about 7.5x21 mm. What is it?


the number “471” is DWM’s case-register number for 7.65m/m Parabellum (.30 Luger). Number “471A” is the Luger Carbine loading, and will have a black case. However, there are lots of black-case carbine rounds that, for whatever reason, say only “471.” They are perfectly legitimate. In fact, I have found them a bit more common that the “471A” correct Carbine headstamp. I mean the black case ones. The ones with plain brass case and “471” headstamp are very, very common.
