pressure test barrel

Hey guys. Need to make a pressure test barrel, for caseless ammo.
What sensors do y'all use? Only pressure barrel I've ever done before was a copper crusher, which isn't nearly scientific enough for this.
I'm fairly familiar with sensor setup and stuff, the barrel isn't a problem, but knowing what sensor to use is my issue. Need to measure pressures up to 80kPSI, with precision around 500-1000 PSI.

Awesome. I think the PCB 117B is also used in explosives testing, so we might have one I can commandeer. The rest of the equipment we should have, or at least have an equivalent to.
