7000 grains in a pound
437.5 grains in an ounce
87.5 grains in 1/5th of an ounce

Well, there are 7000 grains in a pound. So (7000/16)/5 = 87.5 grains.

Unless, that is, I've got it totally, absolutely wrong - but I don't think so.

Yep 87.5 grain .410 hollowbase bullet. These do about 1500-1600fps in 18 or longer barrel and about 1000fps in 10 inch contender.
