With the Creed, you'd have better barrel life, and the potential to run longer VLDs without mag restrictions associated with the .243 Win case OAL.
If you could score 105 Berger Hybrids, you'd probably be better off with a .243 though, as it has a better BC than the 115 bullets.
If you're running anything less than the 107 - 108 bullets, then i believe they only gain you'll have is barrel life.
