piledriver or pile driver jr.?

I am debating about the pros and cons of these two bullets in a .457 ww.magnum/.45-70 with an 18.5 inch barrel. I'd be using them on moose/bear out to 100 to 150 yards. Any thoughts? Would the pile driver drop significantly more than the Jr. at these ranges? I could get them both and experiment myself but thought I would raise the question and learn from the sages ;D

Tho Im partial to the Ranch Dog 425 & the Original Lyman Rose Nose 405.
I'd not use anything smaller. For Bear anything over 500 will drive them backwards
