I'm pretty sure most guys attribute chain fires to no cap or a poor fitting one. I've been shooting C&B revolvers since the 70s and never had a chain fire. When a round piece of lead is left from ramming a ball down in the cylinder, I personally can't see how a spark could get in from that end. Also there's the lube, either a wafer before or after the ball, or some grease on top. Deltadart has a post of what happens when a #11 cap is pinched to fit tight. It has a raised portion that could allow sparks to enter under it.
Anyway, I can't see how SASS officials would allow a uncapped cylinder in any match. It would present problems. JMHO
