If the result is different when done at the factory, that would definitely be the best way to go.
Yes... it would seem to be worth the extra shipping costs...

I have the Sensenich prop for the O360, and it has a redline of 2700rpm per my paperwork. I could not find that restriction online though.

I was also told by a couple of shops that the 72FM hub is very thick and can't be easily adjusted without a press. Most certified props have a much thinner hub thickness and are easier to twist. I decided I would only trust the factory to adjust mine.
