“Jason”I don’t have any experience with either one of these, but definitely be cognizant of the parallax distances.  Last year I bought a Vortex FFP scope and it has a 50 yard parallax.  I didn’t pay much attention to this at the time, but have since missed the opportunity to take several shots at live targets that were closer than 50 yards because I couldn’t see them clearly in my scope.  Since then I’ve removed the Vortex, put it in the closet and bought a BSA FFP scope that can focus at much closer distances.  Don’t get me wrong, the Vortex is a great scope and their customer service is top notch, but it was just not the right choice for my desired application due to the parallax distances. 

I see the Burris has a parallax of 50 yards to infinity like my Vortex and the Sightron is 13 yards to infinity.

Just my 2 cents…

I plan on using this scope for shooting 75 yards or more. I’m going to buy a GG&G dovetail to picatinny adapter so I can use QD rings on all of my scopes. For anything under 75 feet, I’ll use my Hawke Sidewinder Pro.
