If these two measurements are from different sites, it could be the same part and one site is just rounding up.

On the other hand: If they are two different parts, there is probably a reason for it.

If you already have one that you can measure, measure it and then you'll know. I am guessing that as North said, they could be the same size, just someone being overly accurate. If anything I'd go with the smaller option because it will fit into a larger hole, but not the other way round.
Good luck.
