Ammo Weight

I am having a discussion about the benefits/drawbacks of 6.8 SPC vs 5.56 and one thing that has come up is size and weight.

The physical size is not a concern to me, but I would like to know the difference in weights.

Does anyone know the overall weights of the average 6.8 round and the weight of an average 5.56 round? I would like it in grams if possible.

I want to calculate what the weight difference would be of a 200 round SAW mag in 6.8 vs 5.56.

but when you factor in the killing power of the 6.8 it equals 5 of the 5.56 suddenly the 6.8 becomes the lighter more lethal round
