Basepads make loading easier, if the mag fits flush in the gun it's harder to make sure it's seated properly. Some say the also protect the mag form hitting the ground. Very popular in competition and necessary for guns with magwells.

They help keep getting your skin caught between the mag and the frame which hurts!

I also use them to identify certain mags. For my stainless mags, the bigger pad is 8-rd, the smaller pad is 7-rd.
