Ruger 10-22 will indent the primer face about the same. Has to do with the shape of the end of the firing pin, nothing more.

What you've got there is called firing pin drag or primer drag. Not at all unusual.
That's what it's called and it indicates the gun is unlocking a bit prematurely. Some Glocks are known to do this routinely.

And no, not all M&Ps do it. Neither of mine do. They both leave nice round firing pin indents in the primers.
