To make the volume consistent, use distilled water chilled to 4 degrees centigrade. Seriously, what do you need to convert? I'd hate to be a smartass and get someone hurt. (as opposed to just being a harmless smartass) twb
 June 26, 2007, 12:01 PM #5 Unclenick Staff   Join Date: March 4, 2005 Location: Ohio Posts: 13,714 These numbers are not correct. 28.3495 is the conversion for grams weight to an ounce of weight. A fluid ounce is larger than an ounce of water at 4°C, because it is the volume of the weight of water at almost the boiling point, where water is less dense. The correct conversion is: 1 fluid ounce = 29.5735 ml or cc's. __________________ Gunsite Orange Hat Family Member CMP Certified GSM Master Instructor NRA Certified Rifle Instructor NRA Benefactor Member

 June 27, 2007, 08:20 AM #9 PeteQuad Senior Member   Join Date: March 9, 2007 Posts: 198 Click on the link above, it likes it just fine. You have to be sure to specify fluid ounce of course though.
 June 27, 2007, 09:46 AM #10 Mike Irwin Staff   Join Date: April 13, 2000 Location: Northern Virginia Posts: 39,153 Ok, that's the problem, I wasn't specifying fluid ounces. I was just saying ounces. No wonder it didn't like it. __________________ "The gift which I am sending you is called a dog, and is in fact the most precious and valuable possession of mankind" -Theodorus Gaza Baby Jesus cries when the fat redneck doesn't have military-grade firepower.

Eick Senior Member   Join Date: August 3, 1999 Location: Houston, Texas Posts: 2,991 For stuff like this, I highly recommend the freeware program called "convert.exe". It is a windows based program that I and many in the company use routinely. Please register your copy though. http://joshmadison.com/software/convert/ __________________ 10mm and 357sig, the best things to come along since the 38 super!
