Long range target and wild boar hunting.  That is an interesting combination.  Most of my boar hunting has been up close and personal and better suited for a low variable or iron sights.
 
For long range target, the top two in my opinion are the Nightforce and Swarovski with the Nightforce getting the nod for me.  Optical quality between the two are equally outstanding.  Nightforce is a heavy scope but I've been very pleased with the one I have.

On what rifle will it be mounted?

Define, if you will "long range."

Take the Leupold off the list, "best" doesn't describe Leupold tactical scopes (maybe 20 years ago, today, no chance.)

I've done a fair bit of hog hunting and if they don't go down to 1 shot, they tend to run (fast) out of or through one's field of view.  I recommend a lower magnification  on the bottom end than what you have listed.

Will you be doping shots on the turret or on the reticle - or both?

With a few details, we can help.

For long range target shooting:

The Leupold & Nightforcer would be good choices with preference to Nightforce.  Don't have an opinion on the Burris Tactical scope. The Swarovski probably has the best optics but would be a poor choice for target shooting because of the knobs and the reticle.  For target shooters, cranking the knobs is a "a-must".  I would only use a hold over reticle like that on a varmint rig.
 
I wouldn't use any of these for wild boar hunting.  But then, I'm visualizing that boar hunting is done in wooded and brushy areas, not in wide open spaces. 
 
There are some other scopes sold here that might interest you although I don't have any experience with them.  One I hear of often is Vortex.  Others are SWFA SS, Sightron, US Optics.  You would have to check and see if they have the zoom/magnification you're after.
