Another cartridge ID


#1

Picked up a cartridge at a gun show the other day with a wood bullet and was told it was a 7mm Mauser which it is not.
The dimensions are as follows. Wood bullet dia. .266, Case length 2.155, Base dia. .477, Head dia .480, Neck length .288, Neck dia. .295. The headstamp is divided into 4 parts. At 21:00 is a crown, at 3:00 is the no. 1, at 6:00 is DWM and at 9:00 is the no. 4. I’m thinking that it is a Portuguese Vergueiro 6.5X58mm but not sure.
Any help would be helpful.
Thanks,
Kevin
