reflex optic vs leupold scope

Hi all,
so this past week at work a buddy of mine calls me over to his computer asking if I knew anything about "these". There was a picture of a reflex optic on his screen and I asked what he would be using it for, he replied it would be for his deer rifle.
In a drawn out conversation I learn he is deciding between a reflex optic and a leupold scope. I don't have any model numbers to share unfortunately but both were about $300. My knee jerk reaction was to tell him to go for the leupold but I told him I would ask around a bit.

So my question to you all is what would you tell him?

I think the leupold is superior to the reflex optic in this case because the rifle is being used for hunting so there isn't much need or instinctual/snap shooting. If this was going on a shotgun I'd say the reflex would be better because when shooting rabbit, duck, pheasant, grouse etc. you are doing more snap shooting. I'm interested in your opinions and thoughts.

A fine company with good, helpful customer service. I also believe they now own Redfield. I own one of each, a Leupold VX3 3.5 x 10 x 40 with duplex retical that was purchased in 2006 and has been flawless. I also mounted a Redfield Revolution 2-7x33 4-plex on a 12g slug gun for a couple of years now and it's also been as advertized.
