Ever Wonder How Many Grains are in an Ounce?
We banter about the terms, and use them daily. My 1911 is chambered in .45 ACP, and I typically shoot 230 grain bullets, but on occasion I’ll load up some 185 grain … What does all this mean, and how do we determine, in terms we can understand, what something actually weighs? I mean, I know that my 230 grain lead weighs about a half an ounce, but is it more or less than a half ounce, and by how much?
Well — here’s some help.
