30-06 ammo?

I purchased a 250 round belt of what i thought was 30-06. but when i compared it to a round from a box i just bought, the casing looks shorter but the bullet brings it to the same height as the round i know for sure is an 06.
the casing is the same diameter, and the bullet appears to be the same diameter. it just seems longer.
the round on the left is a 30-06. the one on the right is the one i need help to identify. the lettering on the bottom is FCPQ 47
