    Default AMMO Help Needed....weight of .22LR vs. .22Mag.

    I need someone with an electric scale to weigh the same amount of .22LR and .22Mag. (They must both be in the same container (Plastic or paper box)........ The larger the quanity that can be weighed at the same time the better, like a brick of each, or 100 rounds of each.

    Thank You if anyone can help.

    If I was back home I'd do it for you, but alas, I am not....

    You can't do the math with the weight of one of each? No solar powered calculator up that far North?

    I had a compass, but without a map, it's just a cool toy to show you where oceans and ice are.

    lol
    I can't even look up the weight or see that picture lol This is one of the only sites I can get on right now cause my computer has some kind of virus... My computer wiz buddy said he thinks it might be "Google Reader", not actually a google program but a virus. I asked him how to get rid of it, and he said "that is a very good question...." (mind you this guy is smart enough to hack into the pentagon, so that answer scares me...). Then ha started talking a bunch of technical mumbo jumbo that I didn't follow, so hopefully he can get my computer back to normal tomorrow....

    It says .22 weighs more than .22mag? Is that right?

    The number in the right column is the number of rounds in a pound. I just weighed a box (550 rounds) of Federal 22lr (36 grain) and it came out to 3.96 pounds including the box, which is 138.89 rounds per pound (give or take because the weight of the box).
