English term or phrase:at 100 ozs
From the description of the collection in an artillery museum:
Portfires: ".... Their manufacture was as precisely detailed, as was their size, paper type, etc. The set of tools here displayed exactly follows those in the instructions contained in a Royal Laboratory document of 1825. Even the paper used at 100 ozs is cartridge paper of the exact type and weight laid down."
I don't know what to make of the "at 100 ozs" bit. As far as I know, paper weight is expressed in grams. Can anyone help? Thanks!
Absolutely! Please re-open the question and debit the points from my account, if you know how to do that. If there is a way for me to do it, please let me know. I apologize for having caused you this inconvenience.
