Default Best Scope for $200 or Less ?

I'm looking to buy a scope for my son's back-up rifle - a Remington Model 7 in 7mm/08. He's already got a Leupold Vari X 3 on his A-Bolt 30/06 so I don't want to break the bank on this one.
I'm thinking a Leupold Vari X 1. Cabela's has them on sale for about $190.
I'm also kind of thinking of getting the 2x7x33 (as opposed to the 3x9x40) because the rifle is small.
Any input on a good scope in this price range ? Thanks.

Default Swift Scopes

I have a Swift Optics scope mounted on the same rifle and I love it. Its a 3x9x40 that was just over a hundred bucks 10 years ago. I have had no problems and never had to re zero it in ten years of hunting.

My brother has a Swift on a .223 bolt action. It seems to be a good scope. Nikon prostaff is another good scope for less then $200.
