Ballistic tips shape change?

I was using a box of Nosler B Tips 270 130 grain that was probably 10 years old. The total length of my cartridge using that box was 3.340 inches. I ran out of bullets and bought a new box of the same type of bullet. Without adjusting the dies, the new total lenght is 3.370 inches. Did Nosler change the bullet shape? I assume this will affect accuracy?

Manufacturers are always developing their bullets.It's not unusual at all to see a change .It may be done for performance ,accuracy or manufacturing reasons.
