Delta Optical’s Titanium HD series has gained widespread popularity among hunters due to quality products for reasonable prices. The strengths of these Japanese rifle scopes are quality optics, robust design, and finely-adjustable red dots.
The series includes multiple models: 1–6 x 24 is perfect for driven hunts, 1.5–9 x 45 proves to be good at stalking, 4–24 x 50 allows shots on longer ranges, 2.5–15 x 56 reliably operates in low-light situations, and 2.5–10 x 50 is an all-round rifle scope suitable for different types of hunting. This article reviews one of the more popular models in this series: the 2.5–10 x 50 model. It is also the cheapest model at only €750.
Starting with the exterior, Titanium HD 2.5–10 x 50 boasts an aluminum housing. Its structure can endure extremely powerful recoil, so Delta Optical guarantees worry-free mounting even on .375 H & H caliber rifles. The rifle scope exhibits a modern appearance with curved lines, capped target turrets with ¼ MOA adjustment per click, and a quality magnification adjustment ring. On the left side, you can find the illumination turret and one of the most distinguishing features of this rifle scope: finely-adjustable red dot.
Red dot illumination can be set on eleven levels. For an all-round hunting rifle scope that is crucial, because it allows fine adjustment in all lighting conditions. The 4A-S reticle is a variant of the German four reticle and one of the most popular in the hunting community. Customary for European rifle scopes, it is placed in the second focal plane.
Let us move on to one of the most salient features of rifle scopes: optics quality. Titanium HD 2.5.–10 x 50 definitely stands out in its price range. The image is sharp, colors lively, and the field of view wide. That holds for all models in this series.
The versatile magnification and 50mm lens make this model suitable for different types of hunting. It is, therefore, an excellent choice for those who are buying their first rifle scope or those who use one rifle for various types of hunting. The inside is filled with dry nitrogen, preventing fogging at low temperatures (up to -20°C). A waterproof structure makes it impenetrable even for rain.
