Easy Noob Question - M1A

When using a scope, is there a problem with brass hitting the scope? Do you have to get some kind of deflector or does it miss the scope automatically?

Thanks

The mounts I have, and all the others I have seen put the scope high enough that the brass clears it.

However, this also puts it too high for a regular cheek weld with the standard stock.

The new design stocks with rails and a forward mounted scope do away with this issue. But they just don't look right to the traditionalist in me.
