Load data for caliber ".510 DTC"
The .510 DTC Europ is a proprietary cartridge developed by the European company Sako in the early 2000s. It is based on the .416 Rigby cartridge case and uses a .510-inch diameter bullet. The cartridge has a case length of 2.5 inches, which is shorter than the case length of the .510 DTC.

The .510 DTC Europ was developed for use in hunting large and dangerous game, particularly in Africa. It is capable of producing high muzzle energy and velocity, making it effective against animals such as elephants and buffalo. However, due to its power, the cartridge also produces significant recoil, which can be challenging to manage for some shooters.

The .510 DTC Europ is not a standardized cartridge and is only available from a few specialty manufacturers. It is typically used in bolt-action rifles and is not as widely available as more common cartridges.

The Commission internationale permanente pour l'épreuve des armes à feu portatives ("Permanent International Commission for the Proof of Small Arms" – commonly abbreviated as C.I.P.) is an international organisation which sets standards for safety testing of firearms. (The word portatives ("portable") in the name refers to the fact the C.I.P. tests small arms almost exclusively; it is ordinarily omitted from the English translation of the name.) As of 2015, its members are the national governments of 14 countries, of which 11 are European Union member states. The C.I.P. safeguards that all firearms and ammunition sold to civilian purchasers in member states are safe for the users.
To achieve this, all such firearms are first proof tested at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses. The same applies for cartridges; at regular intervals, cartridges are tested against the C.I.P. pressure specifications at the ammunition manufacturing plants and at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses.
