Computing Shell Weights
Computing the weight of a USN Non-Superheavy Shell
sW = 0.442 * gC3.054
sW is Shell Weight in pounds.
GC is Gun Caliber in inches.
EXAMPLE: How heavy would a 31.5” Shell be?
0.442 * 31.53.054 = 16,664
Thus, an 31.5” Shell would weigh 16,664 pounds (the 80 cm Dora Shell of the same calibre weighed 15,652 lbs)
