Has anyone ever seen or know who makes it. It it a piece like a palm saver that goes on the end of your ram rod when you are loading it that when it seats the bullet it makes a little peice come out of the end. kinda springee when ou push on it and the bullet is seated. Its cylinder in shape and is knurled. it consistently tells you that you have put the same pressure on the bullet. I was trying to see if they make one anymore or anyone has one for sale?

Thanks for any help!

I havent seen the exact that you are describing. I ended up getting a screw on T handle. not only do I use it at the range, but carry it in my pocket in the field as well.

I practice getting it screwed on for a follow up shot and have gotten pretty quick with it

I haven't seen one like you are describing but I think I get the idea. A seat pressure indicator kinda like you see on a shotshell reloader. Have you seen this gadget before? If not it sounds like a good idea.

Not sure but I think I might have found something. Try this link and look at the second item from the top. There isn't much info about it there but reading the description, I think it might be what you are talking about. Hope this helps.

All right ya'll, here's what deerhaulers is talking about,
The brass end goes over the ramrod and on the other end a small metal pin pushes up and hits your thumb when you get to a certain pressure (don't know what that is I'll have to measure it)
It's called an ACCUPACKER UFA.
I bought this about 15 years ago and haven't seen one since.
