    here is a gram to grain conversion chart . looks like you can get 175 loads out of 500 grams . in my 7-08 I've used IMR 4064 with good results . I've been playing with reloader 17 recently . I'm just to busy with other things to get serious with the shooting right now . Jim

    1 pound of powder equals 7,000 grains.
    divide 7,000 by the number of grains per round and your done.

    You may want to make your powder canister for how many grains have been used / how many grains remain, so you know ahead of time if you'll need to open a new canister before you start loading your next load schedule.

    I make a schedule of what I am going to load before I start, so I know ahead of time what amount of powder I will use, tips, primers etc... It helps me stay focued on the job, by just checking off what I have loaded, I know whats next on the schedule.

    Good luck.
