    I have a circa 1950's chemistry text around here somewhere that gives a conversion table for apothecary to metric measurements, but unless I go into the book vault and try to unpack about 50 boxes, I'll never find it easily.

    Who here can give me close-enough conversions for the typical bullet weights? 124 gr, 230 gr, 115 gr, 158 gr, etc, etc. what do these translate to in grams? (or english, even?)

    thanks a lot,
    DD

    Convert it.

    A great little program I keep on my desktop.

    Or do the math 7000 grains to the pound.

    1 grain is .06479 grams .0022 a ounce
    124 grans is 8.350 grams .2834 a ounce
    158 grans is 8.350 grams .3611 a ounce
    230 grans is 10.238 grams .5257 a ounce

    Any one that wants a copy can send me their email adress on a PM

    There are also many conversion utilities online that you can run in your browser.

    This... Just about any conversion you can imagine, there's sites to do it. Just hit up Google and you'll find it quickly.

    When I need units converted I just use Google, just type in a query of the form "X units in otherunits", e.g. "5.5 grains in grams" or "40 kilometers in miles". Abbreviations work too. It's like magic.
