What does different appearance mean on the bullets? They are all shaped differently or just color?

I've never had an issue with Missouri bullet as of yet. Their availability lately has been a hic-up.
Sooo. I've been getting coated cast from T & B bullets in Oregon. Fair price and NO shipping cost.

This will be like music to the ears of the newly revived Remington bullet operation, eh? Copper prices are pretty dang high now though, could be a factor, don't know.

If the Rem ammo purchased uses a match bullet,Sierra will be making money.

Sierra was always 101 to the box. We are going through MO in Nov. I plan on stopping at Sierra and seeing if they still sell 2nds by the pound like they did when they were in Whittier. If they do I figure I'll get 100 pounds of whatever they have that I can use. Every box I've ever opened they have just been dumped not laid in.

All the "green box" bullets that I have purchased have been dumped in, none wrapped in paper. Same goes for the "red box", "black box" and "yellow box" box brands. I do note that both the yellow and black (Berger & Barnes) boxes have a foam pad inside to keep the bullets from bouncing around and the red box folks pack their A-Tip bullets individually.

Really sucks when the box is good but the bullets are green. As in oxidized. No big deal, 5-10 minutes in a tumbler with SS pins and soap slurry and they look brand new.
To the OP...
Come on, man!!

Default The other Missouri company

I'm probably shooting myself in the foot (figuritively only), but here's a shout out to the "other" bullet component manufacturer from Missouri. I ordered a few thousand projectiles from the blue-boxed company at 11:45 a.m. When I checked my email 2 hours later, I received an order confirmation AND notice that my order has been shipped. Expect to receive the packages, and ire of my postal carrier, in 2 - 3 days.

Been shooting green box bullets for 50 years now did anyone get what was wrong with these bullets?

I got 1 bullet short as 99 bullets.
I got the label on the box was caddywhompass.
I don't understand the bullets crammed part if the box was light one bullet?
And what does appearance mean? Where they smashed bent no tips discolored?

For my hunting rifle, I have switched to Berger bullets and I am happy. I have not shot competition in 17 years, but I would most likely stick with Sierra. They are the standard, but being a mass manufacturer they can run into quality control issues.
