This may have been an issue in years past but not so much anymore. Commercial manufactures use a pretty good taper crimp on their bullets.
If there is going to be any bullet compression it will be caused by the bullet nose engaging the feed ramp. Once the nose clears the feed ramp and continues into the chamber there is no longer any pressure on it.
Rotating the rounds of ammo will limit the exposure to this issue. You have 19 rounds to rotate if you choose to do so. I think thats a little over kill but one can never overestimate the potential of "What If"?
