Vortex or Burris?

I decided to compare not very expensive scopes and decide which one is better. Is it always a reason to pay more or there is more budget but quality options? So I took Vortex Spitfire 3x and Burris 332. What I liked about Burris - this scope's zeroing is the fastest I've ever seen. Your scope can be dialed in in as little as 10 or 15 rounds. It also maintains zero despite any severe drops along the road, thanks to Burris' mil-spec build, which is strong enough to withstand whatever the field may throw at you, including water, fog, and shock. This is without a doubt the greatest CQB scope I've ever seen. It's tough, has crystal clear glass, is simple to zero, maintains zero, and has the greatest reticle I've ever seen. The price is ridiculous.
What is Vortex concerned - it is a high-quality optic that doesn't come at a high price. It's a little heavier than I'd like at nearly a pound, but it fits nicely on my AR-15. The Vortex Spitfire 3x prism scope is an excellent close-to-mid-range sight for tactical scenarios, rapid target acquisition, and hunting.

Sorry about the late reply but here it is FWIW...

I do not own a Vortex but have used a few at the range with friends. A long time fan of Leupold and Swarovski, I was hoping to be impressed. Wasn't. Too many on here and elsewhere have had issues and had to engage the warranty. Enough said.

A few days ago I posted my .270 Win update with test results. My first Burris purchase. They get what you pay for. In this instance, I got more than I paid for. Pls see my update.

Be well and good luck with your decision.
