3 ounces = 85 grams.
if you bought the .12 gram Pellets 85 grams/.12 grams = 708
if you bought the .20 gram Pellets 85 grams/.20 grams = 425
if you bought the .25 gram Pellets then 85 grams/.25 = 340

get the Idea???
I used the .12 gram pellets in mine and put in 710. Works great at low and high speeds.
Make sure they don't use any grease or anything sticky when they mount your tire. The Beads will stick in the stuff.
They used soapy water when mine was mounted and it was fine.

That's the way I did it. I used the conversion on the internet and counted them out. Good job on the info.
