I know bullet weight is measured in grains. How many grains in an pound? Ounce? Is the bullet weight the weight of just the projectile or the whole shell including gunpowder? Thanks

Bullet weight in grains is the weight of the bullet alone. i.e.; the projectile. The whole cartridge is not factored into this weight. You can convert the weight in grains into grams by Z x .0648 = grams, where Z = weight in grains. In turn, you can then convert it to ounces, pounds, etc. For example, a 165gr bullet weights 10.692 grams and 0.374 ounces. One pound is 453.590 grams. So that 165gr bullet is something like 1/42th of a pound. (i think. i'm stretching my 4am math capability here. )

7000 grains in a pound. (Do any division as you need). Edit: Kellyclan: Your math was close, though some accuracy was lost in conversion.

So hard to figure out! http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=how+many+grains+in+a+pound&aq=0&oq=how+many+grains+in+
