I have already ordered some replacement bolts, do you think i should put copper grease on them?(I read somewere that the torque specs are different if you lubricate the bolts) .

The dent in the end is normal. It is due to the manufacturing process during rolling the threads.

Keep the threads very lightly oiled as rust can act like grinding paste resulting in wear to the threads each time they are removed and replaced.
