its always a possibilty. every rifle, ov every caliber ejects empty shells in different directions. for example my friends AR15 ejects all the cases into a nice little pile about 2 feet forward of the muzzle and 5 feet to the right. mine however. send the cases about 10 feet behind me and to the right..
so were some shooting glasses<as you always should> and just kinda watch to see. my bet is that most likely they will hit around your bicep/shoulder area if they hit you at all..
if you are really nervous, dont worry about aiming the first 2 shots. shoot a couple times into the dirt holding the rifle right handed. and watch the brass eject.
