Wild Bill, I made a device out of a PVC pipe about 3 inches long . I put a cap
on it and put a smaller dia tube inside and pushed in down on the bathroom
scale to 40 lbs. and drew a mark on it. Now when I load, I just push down
on it when placed over the ramrod after the ball is seated to the line. That
way I know that I am puting 40 lbs. of preasure on the powder.
