In the August 2011 issue of Handloader, Charlie Petty has an article about his test of the Kimber Solo. In the first paragraph on Page 37, he writes:

My science education kicks in, and I think in grams, milligrams (0.001), micrograms (0.0001) and even, though it might be an even bigger stretch, the next should be picograms (0.00001).
Oops - we're missing some zeros there, Charlie.

Milligrams (0.001) are fine, but you have to add three zeros for each of the normal steps that follow . . . so a microgram is 0.000001 grams, followed by nanograms (0.000000001) and then finally picograms (0.000000000001).

Hope you properly chastise your editor. ;)
