Here are the numbers for my -10 empty with 8 qts oil:

Right: 688
left: 685
Nose: 330
Total: 1703

CG: 109.64"

My engine is a little different than most. It is an IO-540 V4A5. Weighed with full Flightline Interiors interior package, overhead console, 3 screen G3X Garmin IP, dual PC 680's in the tail along with 2 master's, all fairings installed and painted. My main wheel datums were within 1/8" of Van's.

L= 665
R= 660
N= 333

EW= 1658

Datum= wing leading edge(easier to take measurements from).

Both main wheel centers 24" aft of wing leading edge.

Nose wheel center -46.9" forward of wing leading edge.

EWCG= 9.22"

CG Limit= 8.4-16.8" aft of datum.

Full IFR panel, 2 GRT HX, XIO-540-D4A5, Hartzell 2 BL BA, 60A PP alt, PC680/PC925 batteries in the rear, two contactors, cloth seat covers, painted interior, no carpet, installed spare wiring in wings and fuse, used heavier vs lighter ga wiring on most circuits, ato fuse panels. I would like to replace batteries with LiFe down the road to give me more baggage capacity. We usually take off near GW and love it! No problem keeping the nose wheel off above 15 kts and near aft limit upon landing after 4.5 hr xc.
