When you buy brass at two different times you can plan on the weight being different.

Sometimes you can purchase a package of brass and the weight will vary more than what you're seeing.

It was a store ,Thing is I already primed them.
Do you have access to a hand de-priming tool, either your own or a buddy’s? If no, it may be worth picking one up to have it, not just to remove the primers in that batch on the left. They’re not expensive.

I’d def request a refund/exchange if that left side batch is once fired like mentioned above. Store may have just made a mistake in packing your order.

Good luck, hope you can get it worked out.

Yeah the left group is def fired, looking closer. Hopefully just a mistake in packing order. If not deprime it all and ask for refund or correct brass.

I don’t have a hand de-priming tool.Only on 550 which I have to set up at my buddies
Gotcha...I wouldn’t stress too much about it. Worst case (they won’t exchange or refund) you can either develop a parallel load with that other brass or sell it in the PX to recoup some $$.

Either send it back or deal with it.
run one set till it dies then with possibly a mild modification of the load run the rest.

Weight is one thing, color.
Have you measured anything, shoulder neck length?
