DWM K is Deutsche Waffen u. Munitionsfabriken, Karlsruhe, Germany. I don't know the codes for the other numbers so can't give you a date of manufacture. How obsolete is it? That's like asking how pregnant is your girlfriend? There have been no rifles made in this caliber in the U.S.A. for more than 60 years but I can't say about other countries. I know that some pistol shooters use it for metallic silhouette and some use it in Cowboy action matches. I think Winchester still makes ammunition, and probably others as well..

I don't know the date code but the "519" is the cartridge case number for the 6.5x52R (25-35 Win).In 1935 it was offered by DWM in 3 loads, all using a 118.8gr Soft nose Tombac jacket bullet at velocities between 1870 and 2263 fps in a 24.5" barrel. Perhaps someone else can provide a date code altho most non-military cases weren't dated.
