There seams to be a mistake with the weight of shot. Exemplen A Swedish 24 pounder cannonball actually weight 28,9 skålpund or 27,3 pounds . An english 24 pounder actually just fired a 23,5 pound shot. An english 32 pounder ball was at 33,5 pound. Swedish 12 pounder, 13,6 pound, Swedish 18 pound 20,5 pound . Swedish 36 pounder 41 pound. (”Svensk artilleri måttstock ” from 1705. Would be walid up to 1831. Russian guns would be approx 8-9% larger then the standard pound. Vladislaffs 30 pounder was classified as 29 pounder in sweden.
