I have a new (about 500 rounds thru) Beretta P4X Storm .40 SW. It has been a good gun with no problems except 1 failure to eject in the first 50 rounds. Since then it has been flawless. It does have one fault that annoys me and I would like to fix.

I reload both 9mm and .40 SW also in 30-30 rifle. I shoot light target loads for all, near the bottom of the load data and all work well except for the Beretta.
When I fire this gun it ejects the case 15-20 feet behind and to the right of me. This happens with both factory loads and hand loads. Normally this is not a problem unless one reloads and wants to collect the spent brass. I become difficult at a crowded range when the booths or tables are full of people. I wind up only collecting about 50% of the brass. Also I am pelting others with hot brass that are many feet away minding their own business. I have never seen a pistol eject cases like this before.
I have not sent it back to Beretta as reloads are involved they wouldn't want to touch it and it is not really broken, just too much of a good thing.
Is this something a local gunsmith can take of or something I can do?
Advice is welcome to tone this gun down.

unless you are SAAMI certified never tell a manufacturer you were shooting reloads. even though i'm sure you know what you are doing, they will say that reloads voids warranty.

It's doing what it was designed to do get expended brass the hell out of the way.

During a gun fight expended brass is as useful as used toilet paper.

Don't fix what ain't broke...;)
