XR code is friendlier to BGP traffic engineering.
The ASR9K also has better MPLS support.
You should be able to do most things on both.

Ah.. I've not been able to convince myself that the port density hit on the 9k was worth it yet.

Since the nexus 77k supports 2M IPv4 routes in its FIB and has pretty epic density, we are trying to figure out what that would be a bad choice.
