Ammo pressure testing

Looking for some ideas here. I've had shotgun loads pressure tested, but I don't know where to go to get handgun loads tested. Does anyone have a recommendation for a testing service?

H.P. White has been the long time source and I have read of D.T. Brown.
Their www sites do not give pricing.

Ballistic testing isn't the same thing as pressure testing. There's very little need for it as long as you follow your manual.
However, the H.P. guys do mention having Piezo(PSI) and CUP test barrels. That's pressure testing.

Thank you - those two links are a start. Funny, I've known about HP White for a long time, but they fell into my sea of forgetfulness - and my Google let me down.

Tell me about it.

Personally I'm starting to write all this "stuff" down and putting it in files in one folder on my computer and then letting the computer do the search for me. I sure wish I would have started this years ago.

Good luck.
