Pocket holes in beveled edges

I'm in the middle of building a farmhouse table base, and want to add corner braces across the top of the leg to adjacent apron pieces. The brace will be a 1x4 with 45 degree beveled edges. Was hoping to use pocket holes, but am wondering about the set up. Has anybody used pocket holes in a situation like this? Do you back up the stop collar to account for the loss of material in the beveled edge?
