I'd build an iterative macro that reduces 16 by 30% until it equals the 1/100th of an ounce. Count the number of iterations it takes and thats your answer..

 

Something like this:

If you set the filter tool to [Remaining Weight]<=0.01. it should work I used the same approach as @LordNeilLord, however with my change on the filter.

I came to an answer of 21 sec.
