You do not.

7.65 is not the friendliest caliber to find, though.
In Texas, "He needed killin' " is a defense to prosecution.

AIM's Lugers appear to be "Shooter" grade - I'd prefer something a little better and they can be had, with a good search, for around the same price (and on up.....).....AIM doesn't rate the finish nor the barrel condition (in "percentage" or otherwise) - I'd rather buy from someone like Legacy Collectables

.30 Luger is readily available from PPU and Fiocchi, for 30-50 cents per round - of course 9mm is unlimited (for now) but, for me, I wouldn't be shooting a Luger so much that ammo price would be a concern

personally I'd rather have the .30 cal

(add :  just checked and see that Academy shows that they carry Fiocchi .30 Luger, don't know about PPU - but both of them are all over the internet ammo sites)

My Luger is .30, - (1920's alphabet) It is all matching, with no import marks.
I got it from a guy that didn't want it once he found out it was not 9mm. - he basically gave it to me.

Online is definately the way to go for ammo.

I have not shot the PPU,
the Fiocchi shoots well in my Luger, but some people report problems with the SP ammo in theirs.

Winchester .30 Luger seems over-powered in my Luger. - I don't like to shoot it.

The best ammo I have is some Sako .30 Luger I bought online years ago.
I still have a few boxes left.

I only shoot my Luger about once a year or so, so I don't go through a lot of ammo.

I have cases and dies,
but have not reloaded for it yet.
Hornady used to make a bullet specifically for loading .30 Luger, but I don't think they do anymore.
Although they do have a 90gr .309 XTP bullet, but I'm not sure how they will feed.
