I've omitted the step sometimes with no ill effect. I've found that with or without lube, wads etc, I still need to wipe fouling out of the barrel fairly frequently and take either a cleaning rod or pull-through to the shooting area with me. Bates doesn't bother with lube when he is shooting American Pioneer. I can only remember one chain fire and that was 30+ years ago with a loosely constituted brass framed navy that belonged to somebody else. I don't think its an issue with tight fitting balls.
