Jiffy 701's have fertilizer, 703's don't; there are other types as well. You don't want the 701's. Wrong fertilizer.

It makes no difference at all, as both contain so much lime they should never be used in aquaria without boiling and rinsing very well.

Dunk either 701s or 703s straight into a tank, as is, and your pH will go high enough that the slightest trace of ammonium (and there is plenty enough in the peat) will turn to lethal (in piscine terms) amounts of ammonia. The plants will enjoy the rotting fish carcasses. :-)

Boil pellets and forget the number.
