Bryce, you are looking at the wrong direction of strength. It is not the depth of thread that gives it strength but rather the longitudinal shear area which is in the same direction as the centerline of the bolt.

Jim, more thread depth "grabs" more material thus giving you more longitudinal strength, we are both saying the same thing.
