just for fun i weighed my thermold polymer and checkmate steel 20 round m14 mags, and 1 m80 cartridge, and the thermold fully loaded. 1 gram is the min. resolution of the scale)
thermold = 128g
checkmate = 241g
difference = 113g
1 cartridge = 25g
thermold w/20 rds = 621g
so 4 magazines is a difference of ~1 pound, and 20 rounds of m80 is 493 grams.
and 1 rd of 30-06 weighs 26g
more or less.
