Just for giggles, I looked up the energy of a few of the loads above.

115 FMJRN 5.8 Unique (0.71cc) 10 shots
Average:1048
Energy ft. lbs. 281 (source: Hornady Handbook)

124 GDHP 10 shots
Average:1020
275 (source: Hornady Handbook)

147 FMJTC 4.3 Bullseye (0.46) 10 shots
Average:915
Energy ft. lbs. 264 (source: Hornady Handbook)

Actual penetration may show counter intuitive results, but ..... I would think all of these rounds would perform similarly. Assuming adequate shot placement, the difference would probably prove to be whether the bullet being fired expanded properly.
