Question: After you load the chambers and close the cylinder, how do you know the cylinder is properly locked into position?
It goes, "Click", when you close the cylinder. Other than that, the same way you would know if it had a spur.

i.e. how do you know the cylinder will spin properly?
Test it for function by dry firing before loading. You shoot it frequently, as you should any carry gun.
How can you tell that all cartridges are seated properly and you have no high primers?
Put your cartridges on a flat surface and try to rock them back and can feel if they have a high primer. You use factory ammo for carry, and look at them as you load them, or if blind, feel for a high primer with your finger. If you do not know how to perform those routine functions, you should perhaps consult a knowledgeable firearms instructor.
