An interesting question has emerged as for the cartridges issued for the German M30 “Luftwaffendrilling” (tripple barrel) hunting rifle. This gun was issued to aircrews which flew sorties behind enemy lines and in widely unpopulated areas.
The German manual on the ammunition is not explicitely stating if the ammunition is made for the Luftwaffe and respectively bearing military markings. This fact together with the situation that no such marked ammunition and boxes have been found by specialized researchers lead to the assumption that commercially available ammunition was used.
Does anybody have reliable and confirmed info on the exact kinds of ammunition used?
Means like contemporary photographs or even documentation?
I am not speaking of the Luftwaffe manual L.Dv. 4000/10, this one is known already (and does not contain the wanted info).
For better understanding here an mage of the gun (source: internet):
