If both are FMJ, I doubt there will be a noticeable difference in penetration in anything you might shoot at. 2 grains difference? I bet there's normally more than 2 grains difference in cheap surplus ammo anyway. Welcome to TFL

Agreed. As long as it's FMJ you won't see any difference. Bullet material will make a difference. Steel core bullets are generally going to penetrate more in most cases.
