Default Confusing Sinker Sizes

I there a chart somewhere that tells you what a (for instance) #6 sinker weighs. I'm trying to order some sinkers for bream fishing and I don't know what the numbers mean in weight. I'm trying to find a sinker like this in the link but not exactly sure what it weighs. The size I'm looking for is about the weight of two BB sinkers? Anybody got a clue? Why in the heck don't they just put the weight on the sinker bags anymore? Here's a link to a #7 pack of sinkers, is there any way to find out what each individual sinker weighs????

Not sure if the sizes are standard across manufacturers.

Each manufacturer has their own defination of size, and there are no standard sizes in the lead sinker industry, unless they list them in ounces.
