Tell Sierra, that's a bunch of BS. If it was a .311 in a .308 you could have a bad bang if you were pushing your loads.

I emailed them with the pictures. It is unsettling that this happened but have never had any issues with Sierra bullets before.
If it was the other way around I might have not caught it as long as it seated normally. Dan your right bad bang for sure.

What is the box in the background say? Is it a coincidence that it has .311 and that bullet measures .311?

No, Just showing what it's supposed to be vs what it was.

I'd like to be a fly on the wall in their QC department. I am confident they will be all over this.

Did just that one bullet measure .311"? What did the rest measure?

Judd, a .308 bullet found its' way in a box of .311 bullets. How bad is it if a bullet rattles down a barrel?

The box shows .311" 150g spitzers. The calipers show .311". Am I missing something?

You're missing the second picture which shows the calipers with a .308" bullet.
