Tubbs final finish help

I ordered the fire lapping kit (50pack of 5 differant grits) from midway last week. I received the package today and when I opened it I found the plastic container they used was broken, and all 50 bullets mixxed up at the bottom of the bag.
Is there a way to tell the differance besides feel. Some look and feel so close alike it's hard to tell.
Secondly, this was my first order with midway. How is there costumer service, i hope theyll just send my a new kit. I will call them tomorrow to see what they can/will do for me. If all else fails I will try weighing the all. Between looks, feel and weight there might be a chance

Can you tell by feel or maybe color or even how the light reflects off the bullets? The container they come in needs redesigned no doubt.
