Default Losing Brass while hunting.

Ok so how do I keep this thing from spitting brass half way across a 200 acre field? I don't really want to use some kind of bag is there a deflector that attaches to the picatinny rail?

No but when you set up next to tall brush to shoot ground hogs a tiny little 223 case gets lost rather easy.

I know what you mean. Where I do most of my shooting you have to watch where you stand when shooting semi autos. Pistol brass disappears in almost anything.

The old boys at the range I go to just put a towel over the ejection port area/upper receiver and it catches the brass. I know you said you didn't want to do this, and I'm sure it's a PIA out in the field, though.

One shot...One critter. It's the sacrifice you must make...

Tango,I have a couple of these. They aren't the best things in the world,but atleast you can keep all your brass in the field or at the range.What brass that doesn't go into the bag just falls straight down.
