Dram Explanation

Dram is a common term used to indicate power of shot shells. 

A dram is a unit of weight which is slightly larger than 27 grains.  It was a standard measurement for black powder, but in recent times, powder is measured differently.  

Currently, there isn't any known way to safely measure smokeless powder to a dram equivalent.
