    Default Rounds per Pound Reference Chart

    Nice easy to read chart for those wondering how many rounds they will get per pound of powder.

    There's not much math involved. Divide the number of grains into 7000. You load a 300 win with 70gr and you get 100 rds. 7grs in a 45 gets you 1000 rds. Those are just a couple of easy ones but they give you an idea for a quick estimate. 40grs of powder will be just under 200.

    Just remember that there are 7,000 grains in a pound. Divide 7,000 by your charge weight and you will know how many rounds to the pound you can get. For instance 7000 divided by 220 gr (50BMG)= roughly 34 rounds to the pound.

    I calculate it faster than I could find a chart, and I ain't no good at math a'tall.

    Like rbuck351 says, "There's not much math involved". That's the way I like it too.

    I'm not real good with this modern math,but when i did my goesintas on the 220gr load, I only came up with 31 rounds and enough left for a couple or three 30 06 loads. Thats a lot of powder for one kerbang. It is a pretty big bang though.
