Ok so obviously nobody is going to do this because there are better things to do with Duraludon, but let's say I have a Stealth Rock Duraludon and I threw Stealth Rock at a Magic Bounce Xatu. If I have Stalwart, does it go through anyway? Is a bounce back to my side counted as a redirect?

Magic bounce doesn’t draw in moves....
No, but it redirects moves, and with *that* wording it's ambiguous but yours makes better sense

No, Magic Bounce with still bounce back stealth rocks. Here's a replay:
