    I've heard of people taking a spent case (of any caliber) and rubbing some silicone into the dimple on the primer. Or removing the primer and filling the whole case with something like that (silicone, putty, glue, etc). Just something that will pad the impact of the FP a bit, while also preventing its hyperextension.
