Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-four-hundred-fiftieth as heavy as a Bowling Ball
In other words, 230 grains is 0.00219047619 times the weight of a Bowling Ball, and the weight of a Bowling Ball is 456.5217390 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 one-five-hundredth as heavy as a Dachshund
In other words, the weight of a Dachshund is 500 times 230 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)
The Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) calls for dachshunds to weigh about 100,000 grains. Despite of their small size, a 2008 survey conducted by the University of Pennsylvania named dachshunds as the most aggressive dog breed.
It's about 500 times as heavy as a Grain of Rice
In other words, the weight of a Grain of Rice is 0.002 times 230 grains.
(long grain; 14% moisture content)
A single long grain of rice weighs an average of 0.450 grains. A staple through most of human history, archaeological evidence indicates that the earliest rice cultivation was about 11,500 years ago.
It's about one-eight-hundred-fiftieth as heavy as a Gold Bar
In other words, 230 grains is 0.001197916667 times the weight of a Gold Bar, and the weight of a Gold Bar is 834.78260850 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 one-two-thousandth as heavy as a Dalmatian
In other words, 230 grains is 0.000505 times the weight of a Dalmatian, and the weight of a Dalmatian is 1,980 times that amount.
(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 one-three-thousandth as heavy as a Toilet
In other words, 230 grains is 0.000342 times the weight of a Toilet, and the weight of a Toilet is 2,920 times that amount.

In other words, the weight of an Octopus is 3,300 times 230 grains.
(for Giant Pacific Octopus, Enteroctopus) (Adult, average)
