HotShot nipples = performance

In the spirit of increased understanding what is the general consensus on the forum? Do these vented nipples offer a true improvement?
I had forgotten why I switched to them in the first place. I only measured the "observed" performance. So went back for a stated description. As I replied before, less damage to the spend primers. ...

Here is how TC describes them;

This heat treated stainless steel nipple will provide a more even and consistent flow of pressurized gases from the nipple into the ignition chamber. It will virtually eliminate hammer blow back by venting excessive gases through the side ports. (Not recommended for under-hammer rifles or cap & ball Revolvers).
Be Safe !!!
'Fundamental truths' are easy to recognize because they are verified daily through simple observation and thus, require no testing.
