I can see how that would improve if one was having misfires. It would definitely concentrate the blow in the rim area of the nipple.

I would expect that would thin the rim down too much for me though. I actually have trouble with the nipples mushrooming after a couple thousand shots, so much that I have to chuck the nipple in the drill and spin it against a file to get the cone shape back to normal, or a cap won't fit over it.

(and mine do not misfire, or haven't yet. They only misfire in the case of having a cap jam, where a spent cap blows off an adjacent nipple and gets in the hammer channel, or sticks to the hammer face and softens the blow on the next one.)
Colt 1860. It just feels right.
