Weight of hunting cartridges


#1

I am looking for typical overall cartridge weights for a number of live hunting rounds; unlike for military cartridges, figures are difficult to find (and I don’t have them to weigh myself ;) ). Could someone help? Many thanks.

.240 Nitro Express
.275 Rigby Magnum
.275 H&H Magnum
.300 Savage
.303 Savage
.300 H&H Magnum
.32 Winchester Special
.350 Rigby Magnum
.38-55 Winchester
.38-72 Winchester
.40-72 Winchester
.405 Winchester
.500/450 Magnum Nitro Express
12.7x70mmRB Sch

I’d be happy to weigh the cartridges that I have but you must understand that the total weight will depend very much on the bullet and even the brand of brass. Can you be more specific?
