First of all, Welcome to the OT.
I cannot speak on behalf of the Burris.
I have no field experience with it.
You are correct though.
They are both closely prices and very similar.
The Burris has a slightly longer eye relief.
But I have a handfull of the Vortex Diamondbacks in 3-9x40.
I didn't get a whole lot of photos, because I only had my cell phone on me.
But this picture was taken about 30 min before the sun went down, on 9X at 100 yards.
( Picture removed )
One thing I really like about the Diamondback is the re-setable turrets. I didn't like was how tight they were from the factory.
I had to dial the windage and elevation all the up to loosen them, then find my zero, lift the turret dial off, re-position then tighten back down.
Overall, I was very impressed with how it functions and tracks.
I am very pleased with them.
With it geting dark sooner in the evening has limited my field time with making videos and taking pictures.
But I hope to have some new videos and pics up real on soon mostly on SS stuff.
