SBMC headstamp??

Found 50 cases with a SBMC headstamp.
They cleaned up OK and seem to load OK but on final inspection the primers were not seating properly (-002" to -004").
I use a Dillon progressive loader and ran them thru a 2nd time with no better results.
The primers are protruding .001" to .002" above the base.
Is this stuff Sellier & Bellot or something weird?
All the other cases (LC, WCC, PMC etc.) were fine.

Squires Bingham/Arms Corporation of the Philippines(Armscor), just a quick internet search says the stuff is boxer primed, non corrosive and reloadable

a couple of good links that should be in all range brass collectors favorites/bookmarks

try using a hand primer, my Hornady LnL will not prime Winchester .204 cases but the same shell plate etc will prime Hornady .204 and all .223 that I have ran through it fine.
