Google vs. Chowhound: Anyone got spring roll wrappers on hand?

Hate to dumb the boards down with a calorie question, but trying to Google the nutritional info for a large rice wrapper, I'm getting every answer from 58 calories to 238. That's a huge difference. I'd just go to the store and look at a package, but I'm in a time bind, so I figured, *surely* there's some trusty hound who knows the answer off the top of his/her head.
The spring roll wrappers that you soften in water? If so, the ones I have for 100g say this on the package, svgs = 3.4 per package, Net weight 12 oz./340g.
Cals = 337
Fat = 0
Carbs = 84g
Protein = 1g
Can you do math with not enough info? I have a package that says 280 cals per serving. Serving size 85 grams. Total package weight says 12 oz. Servings per package 4.5. How many wrappers per package? I don't know. I've got 12 left but I've used a few. So maybe 16 or 18? Sorry, may not be much help, but clearly there are several wrappers in a 280 cal serving.
Guys, this is totally helpful—thanks!
Although I will never understand why brands don't use the same weight measurements across the board. If the package is 12 oz., the serving size should be in oz.! Is it deliberate obfuscation, I've always wondered?
Oh, PS: L.N., are those large (8 in. or 10 in.)?
