P.S. I know some metrics but usually work in feet & inches.
Warre' insides-300mm x 300mm x 210mm = 18,900 cubic centimeters or 1,153.35 cubic inches
Lang 8-frame med. insides-12.25in x 18.375in x 6.625 = 1,491.25 cubic inches
337.9 cubic inches more than the Warre', a 29.3% increase
doesn't seem that close to me
