I plan on using the scope for long range hunting. I want something good in low light and something and something that will allow me to reach out and touch the target out to 1 mile.

USO and Premier will fill both those requirements. I would take these over Night Force any day. There are a lot NF guys on this sight, but if you watch the History Channel and Military Channel, most snipers are carrying the Premier, USO, or S&B.

That's up to you. The minimum for me would be there 17x offering. If you can afford to go to the 22x that is the direction I would go. This one and add the options you want.

You think it will be good out to 1 mile? Or do I need something more than the 17x? It says 1500yds+.

Use a 20MOA or 30MOA base. That will give you all the turns you need. That STW will have enough horsepower and flat enough trajectory with the right bullet without any issue. Also pick a reticule that will help you get the extra yardage if you need it. That's the nice thing about USO, you can customize. Get some advise by one of their techs. 17x will allow you to see a human size target w/o any issues.
