    Both my AR and WK180 only throw brass maybe 10 feet. I usually hang a cheap tarp to then side, I have a caragana hedge 8 feet from my bench.

    I figured the Mini 14 threw brass like that so it took care of the close in threat while the actual bullets took care of the distant ones.

    On one site:
    ... there is no safe place to stand on the shooters right side, not even 20 feet back. I have one friend whose tooth was chipped by a mini's ejected brass. he was about 15 feet back and 10 feet right of the shooter.
    I'll just tell any range guests: "if you're going to stand there, keep your mouth closed and don't smile".

    My AR will fling brass too. A lot of the time it ends up bouncing off the stall and landing on bare skin (either down the back of the shirt, front of shirt, or on arms). It's why I always tell people to wear safety glasses (I can't imagine getting a piece of hot brass in the eye would feel too good). If it's not landing on me then it's like 10-15 feet behind me.

    For a brass catcher, if your rifle has a pic rail look up 3Bucc Brass Saver.

    You can order from the states or,I think, 4th gen tactical, or something like that, sells them here.

    Iíve never had an issue with them, they come off easily, and you can buy extra bases to use the same bag on many rifles.

    Iíd only try something else if my rifle didnít have a pic rail OR, far more likely, I avoid buying self loaders that do not have rails

    Itís not cheap-like-Caldwell, but you pay for quality once, or buy something else a few times...

    My ARs fling casings pretty far, but I think my SKS holds the record.
    I have no signature block.

    It happened here.

    My mini 14 would throw brass over the ten foot high berm at my range.
    I made a smaller gas bushing for it. Now it lands on the floor less than 10 feet away.
