    Yes. I had an M16A1 my whole four years as an Army grunt and while I don't recall being hit in the face I was hit in the neck and shirt collar area. Had a piece of hot brass go down my right sleeve once too; went inside the opening slit on BDU's where you button it around the wrist.

    My current A1 clone sports a C7-type upper with the brass deflector built into it.

    I had a piece of brass burn a spot on my neck once. When I got home and the wife saw it, there were lots of accusations, language and explaining to do.
