CCI 30gr VMAX vs. Hornady 30gr VMAX ?

My understanding has been that these two rounds are identical and are in fact both produced by CCI, both are 30gr VMAX at 2200 FPS. The only differences between them being, a) silver case vs. brass case, b) brand headstamp, c) red polymer tip vs. yellow tip. When I've shot them both side-by-side at 50 yards, I've gotten identical POI's and comparable groupings although sometimes the CCI's were better, but I attribute that more to that particular lot than the brand especially if my first assumption is true.

However, when I look them both up on my Strelok app, the CCI is listed with a BC of 0.118 and the Hornady has a BC of 0.095. Now, it's not a huge deal, but it does affect the drop calcs at longer distances a little bit and that could be the difference between a hit or a miss on a small critter. Thinking it might have been a mistake in the app, I called CCI and they told me 0.116 (close enough) for their 30gr VMAX. I asked them why different from Hornady and they had no answer.

Thoughts?
