I'll give it a try anyway.

Try one or two rounds and check case mouth for deformation from the deflector.

Mobuck, does it have to actually catch the brass, or just prevent it from landing ten or 12 feet away?

I've tied a kerchief around the middle of a scope and draped it over the ejection port. On a bench, it leaves the brass in a pile just a few inches to the right of the rifle.

This is a molded deflector with a bag attached to catch the fired brass. Removal of the bag turns it into a "drop it at your feet" deflector.
