Question R1? R2?

My Y67 test gave a predicted haplogroup of R-M198 (an R1 group).

My BigY results said R-M12402 (an R2 group).

Is that large a difference usual? Am I grossly misinterpreting something? Should I drop out of any R1-based projects?

I couldn't find R-M12402 on either the ISOGG or YFull tree and it didn't come up in a google search.

I'm now told that R-M12402 is in fact an R1 haplogroup. I obviously have much to learn!
