Black Powder Weight-How many drams, measure, are there in a pound of black powder?
There are 256 drams (drachms) in one pound weight, and as the dram measures, used in measuring black powder, are made for drams weight in standard black powder, there will be about that many drams measure in a pound of ordinary black powder, although the various powders vary somewhat as regards bulk and weight, so that a pound may run a little short or a little over that figure, depending on its density.
