Consider a Kimber Mountain Ascent as well.

It isn't a factor for the Creedmoor, but for bigger cartridges ultra lightweight can be a negative too - weight absorbs recoil. It's all a balance.

I only use LaRue rings these days. Ultra-lows work on a bolt action; on something with a long rail like an AR you'd need mediums.
