I did a little test yesterday between exacts and express in wind and some good info came back off that.
No it can't make a difference, you cant even compensate for it. The human reaction time is in the order of 300-500ms so something like 600x to 1000x the speed you can react to. Even a blink is 50x slower. 0.5ms is never going to make a difference.
Work out how far s pellet will travel in 0.5ms or the end of a barrel will move during that time.

Otherwise we'd all be using tx hc barrels
