I forgot about my T/Cs. With no ejection,you don’t even have to bend over to pick up any brass.
For range work, I pull the ejectors from my bolt actions. Brass just lies in the action and I pull it out.
Anyone who thinks ARs, AKs and SKSs fling their brass pretty hard has never shot an HK roller-gun.
I used to have a picture of a .308 case gently lodged into the wooden slat on the side of my friend's trailer from using it as a shooting platform. It was a little game we had, to put an empty ammo can some 15-20yds from our shooting position to see if he could catch my empties in it...
I agree...nothing ejects as strong and far as a Ruger Mini 14
On bolt guns, brass is only flung as hard as your open the bolt. On lever guns it's as hard as your work the level. I catch the brass as it falls on my 1892. On semi's some throw brass a mile like a Mini or less so on other rifles. a simple piece of cloth over the action in a way that doesn't impede the bolt can keep brass from flying away. Being snowy this time of year makes brass collection on the ground even more difficult.
Nowhere near a million miles.
Fact is, can't be more than ~ Thirty(30) Feet!
If "positive extraction/ejection" was a lizard?
...the Mini-14 would be an Alligator.
My Savage 99 lever-actions drops the brass at my feet...
[Off topic] Dave,your ID says you're in the "Big Valley". Stockton was my home town, lived in Manteca, for 15 yrs or so. Escaped CA, in '94. now near Tulsa.
Hope OK is treating you ok. I haven't been through Manteca in decades -- I mainly associate it with the smell from the old Spreckels sugar beet processing plant, which shows how long it has been.
The BSA Ralock semiautomatic of about 1950 retains its empties in a bin forming the front of the trigger guard. Too bad it is just a .22.
The SKS doesn't throw brass very far if you take the rod out of the gas tube
Yeh, and driving on 99, past the winery, and the feed yard...
Or just lay it or a tarp on the ground for them to land on
