There would be a difference but it might not be immediately obvious.  Temperature, humidity, and pressure, even choke in your barrel can make a difference to the measured BC of a pellet.  So Chairgun Pro lists the following:

Beeman Kodiak            (10.5)  0.0230
Beeman Kodiak Match  (10.5)  0.0240
H&N Barracuda            (10.5)   0.0250
H&N Barracuda Match  (10.65) 0.0235

I’ve observed large variations in the third significant digit, sometimes even in the second significant digit, when measuring BC on my range.  I would say if you average the above you will have something which is probably about as accurate as you are going to find anywhere else other than on the range with the chronograph on any given day.
