The 580-581 ejects to the side about 20 to 25 feet! The first day at the range with a tactical, running through the first 20 rounder, a guy at the other end of the firing line was glaring at me. I filled up his range box and hit him with warm spent cases. Found a Dillon buffer settled that problem down. It isn't always easy to find an opening at the right end of the line.
