Naw, if it were, a lot more of the body of the case would be showing.
There's only a small amount sitting taller than the chamber.
The webbing of the case is quite thick right there.
Do a web search on the subject for reference, and you will see.

Yes it looks good to me too! and yeah I had a kaboom on a kahr K40 faulty ammo (head case failure) it put the fear of God in me. I wont shoot 40 S&W unless it has a fully supported chamber or a all steel gun. I can't imagine having a rifle going kaboom in my face.
