There have been times when I have needed to cut a bolt shorter and didn't have a die available to straighten the cut threads or didn't have one in the right size.  In that situation it helped to first run a nut down on the bolt before cutting it, then running the nut back up and off the bolt will help straighten the threads that werre bunged up by the hacksaw.
