7 X 57 Mauser drill round ID please

Hi, can anyone please help ID and or date this 7 x 57 drill round. Headstamp is DM * K *

I thought at first it might be for the Spanish Mauser, but with its spitzer bullet it looks very similar to one on JM’s website made in Chile using an .Austrian case.
Many thanks

To what I know this is a DWM case which was converted into a dummy in Chile.

It looks very Chilean to me, with the long flutes running to the shoulder … but that’s only a guess.

It is Chilean. Some very nice headstamps came in among the imported Chilean 7mm blanks and dummies.

Many thanks everyone.
