 December 1, 1999, 11:02 PM #1 jdthaddeus Senior Member   Join Date: November 20, 1999 Location: Az Posts: 470 I am trying to essentially figure out how many "pounds" a .45 caliber 230 grain bullet weighs. Of course, it will only weigh a fraction of a pound. My approach is to figure out how many grains are in a pound, then use that conversion figure. Hence the question, stated in the title. thanks! thaddeus ps- You might ask why I want to know this. Well, I wll reveal that after I have my answer!
