It's about one-fifteenth as heavy as an Anchor of a Cruise Ship
In other words, the weight of an Anchor of a Cruise Ship is 17.50 times 10,000,000 grains.
(for QE2 forward anchor, a.k.a. RMS Queen Elizabeth 2)
Each of the forward anchors of the RMS Queen Elizabeth 2 weighs 174,000,000 grains. The anchor of the QE2 now sits in front of the Holyrood Church in Southampton, England, United Kingdom, along a pedestrian tourist route known as "the QE2 mile."
It's about twenty times as heavy as a Dalmatian
In other words, the weight of a Dalmatian is 0.0455 times 10,000,000 grains.
(a.k.a. Dalmatinac, a.k.a. Carriage Dog, a.k.a. Spotted Coach Dog, a.k.a. Firehouse Dog) (FCI standard; male)
The Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) calls for Dalmatians to weigh between 455,000 grains. The association of the breed with fire departments (and similarly with Budweiser Beer and its team of Clydesdales) stems from their affinity for horses, having been used historically as carriage dogs capable of guiding horse-drawn fire engines to the sites of blazes.
It's about 50 times as heavy as a Gold Bar
In other words, 10,000,000 grains is 52.08333333 times the weight of a Gold Bar, and the weight of a Gold Bar is 0.0192 times that amount.
(London Good Delivery bar)
A "London Good Delivery" gold bar — the variety commonly held by Central Banks — should weigh 192,000 grains. The largest gold bar ever produced was minted by Mitsubishi Materials Corporation (a sibling company of the auto manufacturer) in 2005 and weighed 3,858,089.5880 grains.
It's about 70 times as heavy as a Dachshund
In other words, the weight of a Dachshund is 0.01 times 10,000,000 grains.
(a.k.a. "Wiener dog", a.k.a. Teckel, a.k.a. Dackel, a.k.a. "hot dog dog", a.k.a. "sausage dog", a.k.a. "doxie") (FCI standard; standard size)

It's about 95 times as heavy as a Bowling Ball
In other words, 10,000,000 grains is 95.23809520 times the weight of a Bowling Ball, and the weight of a Bowling Ball is 0.0105 times that amount.
(most common selection among male bowlers)
With an allowable range of 77,000 grains, the most-preferred bowling ball weight among adult, male bowlers is 105,000 grains. Because regulation balls measure the same diameter irrespective of their weight, ball density varies by size and balls weighing less than about 77,161.79180 grains will float in water.
It's about 100 times as heavy as a Gallon of Paint
In other words, the weight of a Gallon of Paint is 0.01 times 10,000,000 grains.
