    At what distance? For what purpose? With what ammunition?

    For self-defense purposes, there would be no practical difference.
    I don't believe that there would be a practical difference in bullet placement or "stopping power" at 25 yards, either; but you might notice a wee, tiny bit of difference at 50 yards.
