Also please elaborate on the precautions which need to be taken and whether all the precautions taken during the trials will still eliminate the risk/chance of faulty ammunition being sent to the frontline units.

The new gun has to meet all pre determined specifications and milestones and the results have to be analysed and certified as having met expectations.
Only after all this will it be accepted into service. until then the firing trials (especially) are to be treated as dangerous and risky and precautions have to be taken.
A burst barrel can be lethal to people standing closeby.
