Are 30-30 tube fed rifles safe?

  1. I'm not that familiar with long guns so please forgive my ignorance. I'm looking at a Mossberg 30-30 lever action rifle which is tubular fed. I was wondering if the fact that the point of the following cartridge, touches the primer area of the leading cartridge, presents a risk of detonation. Amy information is greatly appreciated.
     
  2. Ammo for tube fed lever actions(30-30,35 Rem) is flat point. Even though pointed ammo is available,you don't use those.
