    The rubber band is an ackward way of preventing shell ejection from an auto but it is a quick fix until a proper shell stop can be obtained.

    Use a thick band that has an unstreched dia of about 2". Place it around the reciever when the bolt is closed and start with the band about 3/4 the way back on the ejection port. Open the bolt. Load the gun and fire and if the fired shell does eject, move the band forward a bit. If the fired shell is laying on the shell carrier move the band back a bit. What you want is for the fired shell to be sticking out of the ejection port mouth first. The band will move as you shoot because the bolt handle snags it - so you need to continually adjust the band. After about 25 rounds of this nonsense you will realize that you need a purpose built shell stop or better yet a modified ejector.
