FC 10 or FC 10 Match reload problems?

So I've run across some brass that looks to be .45 ACP, but it is headstamped as either FC 10 or FC 10 MATCH.

I am having a hard time seating primers in them, as there is a step leading into the primer pocket instead of a nice radius/chamfer as found on most brass.

So far I've weeded out about 20 of them out of my pile of brass.

Any thoughts on this brass?

I've seen this stuff too. Those are crimped primer pockets and you'll need to remove them if you want to reload the cases. I personally just throw them out.
New gun, same ol' shot.
