NFC Blank chart (blank loaded @ 16 ounces) ?

I’ve looked around trying to find an explanation, no luck. The picture posted on every NFC blank with the blank it front of a chart (blank loaded with 16 ounces), what am I looking at? Can someone explain what info I’m looking at please?

You are looking at the action under load, the weight used will change with the blanks power, the number that you also see is the blanks ID number in the catalog found in the far left of each entry.

1) Of what practical value is that information?

2) Once someone figure's out the answer to question #1, how then does one make an "apples to apples" comparison to another blank with changing variables?

CCS Data Log a few posts down from yours can help after you have read the information in the Common Cents Info site, upper left in the sponsor side bar. The values there in the CCS Data Log may help you compare other blanks to your NFC blank choice, blanks with the same power and action would look identical to the NFC picture, this doesn't tell you anything about the materials used to make the blank.
