burton binding, is this normal?

I decided to buy a pair of burton cartels during the big sale craze. I got them in a size small since my boots(salomon dialogues)are a size 6.5. when I tried to center my boots I found that I couldn't get them all the way in the heelcup by hand, it was super tight. I put the boots on and tried stepping in, still super duper tight. I have to exert a good amt of force to get my boot down into the heelcup. It is such a tight fit that even when completely unstrapped, i can lift my board on it's toe edge without coming out of the binding. While everything else about the binding seems to fit my boot perfectly and the lack of any heel lift seems great, im wondering if this is normal? This is my first experience with burton bindings and im just a lil confused, if I do return them for a medium will they work good with my boot size?

tight is sometimes good! my nike ZF-1 fight nice and snug into my medium union contacts. tight means a good fit, but if its too tight its no good.
