I believe it would definitely be interesting to know how much difference in velocity you might see but beyond interesting, I am left with "does it matter and if so, how?"
Maybe just ask the question plainly and convey that you're sincerely interested?

One answer is this:

It matters because if you require specific terminal performance from a specific load, and that load has specific (sometimes narrow) parameters (like muzzle velocity) in which it can be expected to perform as designed, you need to know the firearm you're using is capable of delivering the bullet within the critical thresholds.
