            Is this any help

            What are the shotting terms 4 x 8, 4 x 10 etc. and how do they relate to grammes.
            This shotting is often seen on pole floats and relates to the use of styl leads which are used throughout Europe. The conversion table below gives the conversion to grammes.
            Styl Grammes
            4 x 8 0.08
            4 x 9 0.09
            4 x 10 0.1
            4 x 12 0.2
            4 x 14 0.3
            4 x 16 0.5
            4 x 18 0.75
            4 x 20 1.0
