What does the most accurate sub $2500 production rifle in the world look like? The Delta 5 Pro is the product of innovation, world-class cold-hammer-forged barrels, and the custom enhancements that elevate this firearm to professional level. The Delta 5 Pro in .308, 6.5 Creedmoor and 6MM Creedmoor delivers the science of accuracy with a .5 sub-MOA guarantee.

Newcomers to long-range shooting, who seek camaraderie with friends, will find immediate success getting on target with repeatable hits. More experienced competitors will discover the Delta 5 Pro’s rich feature set out of the box, is more than capable of performing as the shooter’s skill level advances. With the Pro’s base price within the Precision Rifle Series Production Division limit, compete with confidence whether you choose black, or for a little more, choose one of our Cerakote finishes (classified as an accessory in Section 2.3.5 in the 2021 PRS rulebook).

Accuracy. Guaranteed.

Guaranteed to shoot 0.5 MOA or better. Talk is cheap—including talk about how accurate a rifle shoots—so Daniel Defense is putting some real firepower behind their words. All Daniel Defense Delta 5 rifles are guaranteed to shoot 0.5 MOA or less at 100 yards when used with quality factory match-grade ammunition. Not "should"; not "might." Guaranteed to. How can we make such a claim? Because we've done the work and the testing to back it up. It's not just talk; it's not bravado. It's science, backed up by data. Data that says, "If we can do it, so can you." Guaranteed.
