1) First convert to Drams:

1 Fl. Ounce = 8 Fl. Drams

2) Then, a quick proportion to solve

1200 mg - - 300 mg
-------- = --------
8 Drams - - X

3) Answer

I got 2 Fluid Drams, is that right

No need to use grains

8 fluid drams = 1 fluid ounce. Convert the g to mg and the fl oz. to fl. drams, then set up your ratio to find the number of drams for 300 mg.
