EDM ARMS

New for 2005

The 510 DTC EUROP California legal .50 caliber 1000 yard FCSA approved match cartridge.

On January 1, 2005 California’s Assembly Bill (AB 50 ) became law which disallows future sales of .50 BMG rifles in California. The law classifies any rifle capable of chambering the .50 BMG cartridge as defined, as an “assault rifle”. Moreover, it requires California Department of Justice registration of existing BMG rifles in possession of California residents.

Approximately five years ago due to similar laws in Europe, Mr. Eric Danis, owner of Dan Tec France, of France developed the 510 DTC EUROP .50 caliber cartridge which will be chambered by EDM ARMS in their model 96 and 99 bolt-action “WINDRUNNER” tactical, lightweight, takedown rifles in 2005. The 510 DTC EUROP cartridge was discussed in the 2000-1 FCSA High Power magazine as being comparable to the .50 BMG cartridge for 1000 yard match competition. The 510 DTC EUROP is made by fire forming a .50 BMG case in the 510 DTC EUROP chamber. The 510 DTC EUROP case is .100 of an inch shorter than the .50 BMG case, and has an 18-½ degree shoulder compared to the BMG’s 15-degree shoulder. The 510 DTC EUROP case measures .760 diameter at the top of the shoulder compared to the BMG’s measurement of .715 inch. The 510 DTC EUROP cartridge utilizes a .510-inch diameter projectile such as the Hornady 750 grain A-MAX. The 510 DTC EUROP case has the same volume of powder capacity as the .50 BMG and has 1000-yard accuracy comparable to the BMG. Simply stated, the 510 DTC EUROP is slightly fatter, straighter, steeper, and shorter than the BMG. Importantly, the .50 BMG cartridge will not chamber in the 510 DTC EUROP chamber and conversely, the 510 DTC EUROP will not chamber in the BMG chamber.

The 510 DTC EUROP is California legal and reloading dies and chamber reamers are currently available from several U.S. manufacturers.

The 510 DTC EUROP cartridge will prove to be invaluable in California and other states where the BMG becomes illegal. EDM ARMS thanks to Mr. Danis for his international contribution!

Yep, been around for a while across the pond. I spoke of this round when you had the .408 ChevTac thread up. You may want to also look at the 50 S/T round. With a faster burning powder it is a "decent" round. And you can get brass for it from ammoman.com pretty cheap. More builders are using the 50S/T round than the 510DT. EDM arms is the only company that is currently offereing a "factory" rifle in this chambering.
