I am 354 LM, 347 RM, 10 TW for 721 EW and 39.9” CG.
My battery is behind seatback bulkhead.

I too have my battery aft of the first bulkhead in the tailcone (I can't remember what it is either!!).  I've included my empty weight and balance data below - hopefully gmail won't screw up the formatting too much.  This was done 31 years ago, so it may have changed over time!  Remember when the plane is weighed it is in level attitude (NOT with the tail on the ground).  Jim said he had 15 pounds on the tail, and I've got 18, so we're pretty close.  I hope that helps.

Hi Chris,
I have a large battery (32 lbs) in the rear tail cone behind the first bulkhead (forget the FS station - I built it 35 years ago).

  I am getting close to the W and Balance of the airplane.

  On the Q200 with the continental does anyone use ballast in the tail.
If so, how much?

What are most people getting for tail weight?
