Yep, as the others have said, its normal. I always get nervous when my 30.06 loads 220 grains are squishing down the powder and you can hear it as I work the press.
If you use the recommended powders and loads for a rifle, its very hard to have a super dangerous hot load. It is more dangerous when you go well below
the recomended minimum powder charge. Then you can end up with not enough pressure to push the bullet out the barrel, making the bullet get stuck, and all that pressure will blow backwards towards the bolt.
More powder than required generally just burns out the muzzle and makes your gun look like the USS Missouri's 16 inch guns
But still follow the guidelines between min and max powder levels and you will be fine
