All of my Colts have spit shells forward or 90 to the right. I had a few old Hydramatics though that have spit them straight at the brass deflector.

My Century Arms AR-15A2 spits them straight out to the right, about 5 feet from the shooter and in a pretty tight pile. Not like my SKS, which scatters them in a 20 foot, 180 degree arc around the right side of the rifle.
