Can you identify?

Picked this up recently because of the package and date code. Is this for a K98? Cartridge has exactly the same marks as are on the box. Contains 2 each 5 round stripper clips. If not K98, any ideas?

Thanks for looking

The clip is the giveaway. K98 takes a stripper just like a 1903 or M14

This is the Nazi-marked ammo that Century was selling, or may still be selling. Used in the Austrian and Hungarian M95 rifles.
