Considering the bankruptcy issues Remington is in the middle of, I'd be thinking anything but unless you're building the rifle. Otherwise, one commercial hunting rifle is pretty much the same as the next.
Best you find a reliable source of ammo and/or brass too. Both Midway and Graf's show ammo as being difficult to come by. Brass is kind of sporadic too. Buying as much brass as you can find/afford, when/if you can find it is a good idea too.
Can't find any recoil tables with the 6.5 Creed on it but that Christiansen Arms rifle weighs 6.3 pounds. Sounds kind of light to me. A 142 grain bullet out of an 8 pound rifle has about 12 foot pounds of recoil energy.
