How 'Bout This Scope On A SA Scout?

Anyone have any experience using an extended eye relief scope on a forward-mount M1A application? This looks kind of interesting...

When you shoulder the rifle comfortably, how far is your eye from the breech (i.e., the farthest back a scope could be mounted without being hit by an ejected shell). You may find that the 9.3" of eye relief may be a little short. Burris has handgun scopes with eye relief in the 10-14 inch range.

I have two M1's set up with the scout mount. One has the Leupold 2.5x28 scout scope, and the other has a Burris 2x7 handgun scope. Both work fine but I prefer the Burris with more magnification. It is a little heavier, but I like the 7 power magnification.
