Actually a slightly loose fit is better, and here's why;
Too tight of a fit can Cause the Saddle to not freely sit flat on the bottom. Good contact is paramount for better tonal transfer.
Too tight of a fit...like you described with your micarta saddle, will not only not allow the saddle to freely rest flat, but can also cause unwanted stresses on the bridge itself.
Of course, Too loose of a fit is not great either. But from your description it sound perfect.
Good luck and welcome to the bone saddle club. No question in my mind, bone sounds wonderful. More harmonics.
