You can measure a crossbow pull strength in exactly the same way as a regular bow. The difference is with a regular bow that you can pull the bow back less to reduce poundage where-as you have no such choice with a crossbow. On the other hand the short prods of a cross-bow (and the LARP bungee style) have less "cast" than a bow and less string speed which usually results in considerably reduced range and missile speed so it's kind of swings and roundabouts.

I'd recommend getting the seller to test-fire a crossbow at you from various ranges and get a feel for it on the recieving end. If you are a bit more "rough and tumble" than most (some of us don't mind a beating as much as others) then try the same test on someone more breakable. . a girlfriend or wife perhaps? If after getting shot a few times you are in pain, the bow's probably too strong
