If you are not using a lubed felt overpowder wad or closing the chamber mouth with grease you are more likely to experience a chain fire. The ball can feel 'snug' if it only contacts the chamber wall in two places, while the rest of the circumference is away from the wall and open to hot gas from an adjacent cylinder.

To the extent that a chain fire is a safety problem, you do have a safety concern.
