    Default ML ramrod seating pressure device

    Looking for one. Doesn't look like much exists.

    Would love an adjustable one!

    Thoughts?

    Are you looking for a device that measures seating pressure or one that can repeat the amount of seating pressure applied to a specific load?

    Either would work well. Repeating a certain pressure is fine as long as it is the right pressure!

    I guess for me the right pressure is being able to repeat the same amount for a specific load.
    Below is a picture of my preferred method using a modified T handle for the ramrod that has an adjustable sleeve to preset height for additional travel to bottom out on the muzzle or in my case my ramrod guide. This produces the same seating pressure for a specific load. So you could set the gap height for different amounts of final seating pressure.
    Change the load column height and you can readjust the sleeve to what you need for gap height.

    This is a homemade project that works well.

    There is a bench reloading ramrod that has an adjustable collar that would do the same but I canít remember who manufactures it.
