    A mathmetician will breeze through this, but I haven't a clue how to figure it. I hope some of you math whizs can help me out.

    If you are droping 19.2 grains of 700X, how many shells will you get from a pound?

    Thanks, guys.

    John

    divide 7000 by 19.2 and you get 364 shells per pound but subtract a few for the grains that sift out of the charge bar.

    You can also use the reloading calculator (s) from the home page. Helps balance out the larger bulk buys.

    In what educational system is someone considered a "math whiz" when they can do division?

    This was going to be a PM, but since Scott has his PM turned off, I will publish it. Sorry if I offend anyone but Scott.

    Well Scott,

    I would say it would be one where one has the knowledge to know there are 7000 grains in a pound. I had no idea, and asked for help. Personally, I am working in the heat and air profession, and it does not require me to keep up with mathmatical conversions of that type.

    I know you must be a genius, and keep all that info in your head, but at my age, I REALLY don't mind asking a question, and getting help from folks that are nice enough to help out those of us that need it.

    At the same time, when questions are asked that I can help out with, I try not to be a smart a** like you, and give the person a helping hand.

    John

    Some of you guys sure are wound pretty tight!

    John - if you re-read your original post, it doesn't say that you need to know how many grains are in a pound, your post indicates that you have a mathmatical problem. I'm also not sure what your profession has to do with knowing the number of grains in a pound. It seemed logical to me that anyone who actively reloaded would know how many grains are in a pound, regardless of their profession. I'd bet that nobody in my profession knows how many grains are in a pound either, unless they were also a shooter that reloaded ammunition.

    Sorry if I offended you or anyone else - it was just a joke.

    Scott

    Gary- The conversion site you posted is good, but incomplete. I tried it to convert a "smoke" to yards and it wouldn't work. A "smoke" is the distance traveled on a Mule while smoking one cigarette. Few surveyors and cartographers use it anymore.

    Next time Scott just do what the proclaimed experts do Google "grains in a pound" the rest is easy.
