A 30 stick empty is 8oz. loaded it's 32 oz. That data comes form Frank's book. I can not find, quickly, any info on the weights of the drums. However, just the rounds account for about 2.5 lbf. and I'd guess, loaded a 50 weighs about 4, maybe a bit more. It's deffinately heavy normally resulting in a drum dump just to relieve the load.

My 1943 Thompson M1 weights in at 10.48lbs.
My 1928 WH weights in at 9.98lbs.
50 rounds of .45acp weights in at 2.00lbs.
.45acp weights in at(on my digital work scale).04 lbs. each Add the 5.25lbs for a drum and you have a total of 17.23lbs.
