As a general rule....no. The heavier rounds such as 147s will tend to have less felt recoil And make follow up shots a little bit better than a 115, biut that’s about it.

Then add the issue that the Creed is not a match grade gun with a mediocre trigger.....anything you can do to the trigger and your shooting technique will do a lot more than whatever ammo you run through it. That’s not to say it’s a bad gun by any means....it’s just not a $2000 match grade gun.

I would hazard a guess that whatever ammo you might or might not think is more or less accurate from the gun will be more of an issue of the day you are having.

The weight of the bullet generally doesn't affect accuracy, but may well affect the point of impact. The brand/type of ammo will have more effect, i.e., match grade vs. a bulk mass produced variety.

Remember, accuracy is how tight ammo groups if everything else is constant, regardless of if it hits where you aim, assuming you have the fundamentals right (grip, trigger press, sight picture).

The Creed is plenty accurate for its intended purpose. I found little difference in point of impact in 115 vs. 124 grain with mine.

Hi guys, this is my second post in many years (first one was 10min ago on a different thread). I DON'T mean to be the guy that goes off on a diatribe on the misuse of language regarding clip vs magazine, and I certainly don't mean to be a self-righteous jerk about it, but accuracy refers to how close to POA the firearm hits the target. For clarification, precision is the appropriate term for group size. A tight group off target would have great precision but poor accuracy. A crappy group that on average centers in POA is accurate but not precise. Best case, of course, is tight group on bullseye, high precision and accuracy. Unfortunately, we use the terms loosely and/or incorrectly in every day language, like clip vs magazine and theory vs hypothesis. As college physics professor, I correct and clarify this distinction with my students.

Since this is a Creed thread, I have been considering a Creed for a while. I have a PPX 40 and should've bought a 9 years ago. I really love the PPX and shoot it a lot, more so than my more expensive Walthers and Sigs in 40. I hesitate because, even at the price point, I don't want to be expecting a PPX experience and disappointed when/if the Creed falls short.

Cheers!

Well, I think I finally talked myself into picking up a Creed. I need to update my collection. CDNN, here I come.

Don't try to confuse me with your high brow college talk. :D
I've seen this debate played out on the internet since Al Gore invented it and I'll stick with my theoretical hypothesis.

Let us know how you like the Creed!

So I took my new Creed out today. I put 200 rnds through it with no hiccups. I have to say, the Creed is a very nice shooter, love the trigger pull and it does put up some nice groups when I do my part. The grips feel great in my hands, wouldn't need to change backstrap inserts if it came with them. Shooting off hand, it shoots a little high/left at 30ft but that may have been me. Overall, I am tremendously pleased with this pistol, and what a great deal at CDNN. Cheers!

Careful with aluminum ammo

Started using Federal bulk aluminium rounds today in my creed. Cycled the first 3 without problem but then had a major failure. Could not even rack the slide. After getting home, found that the round had fired but the cartridge was jammed in the barrel. Was successful at clearing, but will stay away from the aluminium rounds now. Have successfully fired over 1500 brass rounds without FTE or FTF - several manufacturers.
