# How Many Ounces is a No. 303 Can?

I have an old recipe that calls for a NO. 303 can of fruit cocktail. What size can would that be in ounces? It is used in a great recipe for a fruit cocktail cake that is very moist. Thanks for any help on this.

Approximately 16-17 oz in a 303 can. This will be about 2 cups.
