    Set your camera to 'macro' and don't use the flash
    to keep the glare down.
    Most .223 semi-autos leave some dent damage behind,
    and almost all are re-usable.
    Sharp creasing can split when fired.....but dents will
    'shoot' out from the pressure.
    Using a single shot you are even at a better advantage
    as the brass will be encased without movement when fired.

    It's just a card of stick on pad I buy at the Hardware store. These are foam. I have tried the felt ones, but the don't stick as well.

    Don't know why all my photos from Photobucket are all upside down and backaswards. They have the correct orientation on my PB page.

    Dad has a mini-14 ranch rifle and I am not sure I have ever seen a dented case fly from it. And, they fly from it! :) I have only shot his mini though, no others.

    Ya, my Ranch Rifle slings some brass.......20+ feet or more.
    No dents except for [if] the brass hits something after
    it is slung away....

    Photo bucket is weird in my experience...
    I store my pics in a file in my laptop
    I hate it when you read a thread, and the pics
    from photo bucket are gone and an empty
    box is all you see.

    Brass from my mini would hit the charging handle
