flyback converters put a high voltage on the transistors, don't they?
Have you heard of 2ndary breakdown, on transistor data sheets?

Fets don't have 2ndary break down, but they do have a RBSOA? curve to check.

If you keep destroying parts & get discouraged, (as I have in the past)
get PSPICE from Microsim or Microcap spice or whatever, and a data book.

Then you can blame your simulation...
