Would appreciate help with the approximate manufacturing date, or additional background information?

Headstamp: DWM K K 5 (Deutsche Waffen u. Munitionsfabriken, Karlsruhe).

6M-2

The DWM headstamp indicates it was from about 1904 or later.

Sam,
Nice cartridge. What identifies it as Inert? I there a hole in the case?
Thanks,
Dan

I did a quick check. This case is shown in the DWM 1904 catalog but in the list of cases from 1913, or perhaps created a year or two earlier, it is crossed out as obsolete. That pretty well tells you the time frame this case could have been produced, likely 1903-1912 or so.

Nice item!

Cheers,
Lew
