DblTap is correct,

More weights and measure info (or trivia....you decide)

The grain is the same amount in Avoirdupois(what we use), Troy or Apothecary weight.

Avoirdupois
1 pound = 7000 grains
1 ounce = 437 1/2 grains
1 dram = 27 1/3 grains

Metric conversions

1 grain = 0.0648 gram

1 gram = 15.432 grains

I left out the troy and apothecary equivalents as this is probably more than anyone cared to know,

trivia-if you don't care, information-if you do............

laters

Do they even sell powder by the pound anymore? I almost answered 28,000 grains to a pound.
