The long-rumored Daniel Defense DELTA 5 is the manufacturer’s first foray into bolt-action rifles and the results are impressive.
FIRST LOOK: The Daniel Defense DELTA 5 Bolt-Action Rifle
Tactical-Life contributor Sean Utley got his hands on a pre-production DELTA 5 model at an exclusive event in late 2018. Here’s a quick recap on the shooting experience:
“We were able to shoot the initial pre-production rifles in various scenarios, including general range shooting,” Utley said. “We shot groups from 100 yards all the way out to 1,000 yards on different ranges. Our rifles were chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor. They fed with excellent 140 gr. ELD Match ammo from Hornady. Daniel Defense topped them with high-quality Nightforce Optics, 5-25×56 ATACRs.”
