Copper Unit of Pressure (CUP) Defined by Hodgdon « Daily

Apr 18, 2015 A: Copper Unit of Pressure (CUP) is a measurement used in the ammunition industry to determine the chamber pressure created by a cartridge load. Originally, a precisely formed copper slug was placed in a fixture over the chamber. When the cartridge was fired, the amount of crushing measured on the slug allowed engineers to determine the pressure.

Metallic Cartridge Chamber Pressure Measurement

To this day, most published chamber pressure (MAP) data for metallic cartridges is taken by the copper crusher method of measurement. The proper name for this type of measurement is CUP, or Copper Units of Pressure. Another, similar, method uses lead crusher pellets and the resulting pressure values are called "Lead Units of Pressure," or LUP.

CUP vs. PSI — What’s The Difference in Pressure

Oct 13, 2014 The CUP system uses a copper crush cylinder which is compressed by a piston fitted to a piston hole into the chamber of the test barrel. Pressure generated by the burning propellant causes the piston to move and compress the copper cylinder. This will give it a specific measurable size that can be compared to a set standard.
