Ad captandum muscas..

Matthaeus

Vemortuicida strenuus

  • Civis Illustris

  • Patronus

No semantic difference, only a matter of style or aesthetics, I guess. Also, the latter form, a gerundive, is found more often imo than a simple gerund.
 

Pacifica

grammaticissima

  • Civis Illustris

  • Patrona

Very theoretically, but in practice classical authors never used a gerund with direct object after a preposition.
