Re: Neck chingas!
Trimming a coil or two off the ejector spring is a fairly standard modification for most competition guns, and not a problem at all. For us, it's usually to get the brass to "group" at some position that makes it easy to recover. In my own rifles, I usually set them to eject at about 4 O'Clock from my position so that it dumps them in a little pile right behind my shooting stool. Some ranges (Camp Pendleton and 29 Palms come to mind) make it impossible to recover brass that goes ahead of the firing line, which pretty well sucks for a reloader.
