An herbal pharmacy opened a few months ago just a couple of doors from my shop. I should check their prices. I haven't compared prices in nearly 40 years.

Not 28.3 grams per ounce?

1 ounce in grams - Google Search

BTW you can type in any conversion in Google's search box and it will automatically convert it for you.

That's for an ounce of weight, not a fluid ounce.

What do you all use ?
Another possibility is the liquid measure from a bar set - it's usually 1/2 ounce on one side and one ounce on the other.

Since a gallon(US) of water (128 Fluid oz.) weighs about 8 pounds (within 4%, close enough for government work, or humping a 6 gallon case - ~ 50 lbs of bottled water) an ounce of water weighs roughly 1 oz.(US)

Most coffee scoops are 1/8 cup. I also have a small shot glass that is calibrated on the side for 1/2 and 1 oz and also tbsps.
