I'd point out that grains are an Imperial unit. 7000 grains to the pound.
But seriously, Stu. This is what is called "unacceptable transfer of effort".
If you do the conversion and post it, it means that it's only done once, not by every person who isn't fluent with the unit.
I do all of my pressure calculations in Pascals. But I convert the numbers back, because most people here would either have to stop and think about 3500000 Pa actually means, or look it up on a table. (35 bar, 507.5 psi if you're interested.)
A lot the time, I post basic conversions for any units I've posted.
Coincidentally, I'm building a launcher which will produce 740,750,670 hp ns and 0.000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000410762107966307 pc t<sub>p</sub><sup>-1</sup> when fired with a projectile massing 4.5 μhhg of Hg.
... What, you're not familiar with horsepower-nanoseconds, parsecs per planck time and micro-Hogsheads of mercury (Proper Imperial hogsheads of course, no American customary units here)? Well, you'd better find a conversion table then.
