If it stiffer and very progressive... It will absorb, sure but it will also transfer more forces than less stiff and less progressive up to the point of bottoming out. At bottoming the one that is fully compressed transfers more.
If it's not fully compressed, it's not bottoming.

that's the point of stiffer springs, after all.
There is a big difference between running out of force to continue to compress a spring, and running out of compression. In the first instance, deformation of hard parts will not occur at the same point as it will on a softer spring that bottoms.
