One thing to note-- pumpkin seeds are also called pepitas. There are a ton of entries in the Nutrition Tracker for these. Usually what I do for things like pepitas or dry roasted (no salt) soybeans or raw sunflower seeds, is take a few minutes to look at various entries that are already in the Tracker and compare the nutrition information to the package I've got in my hand, looking for a match. Rather than adding a whole new entry to the Tracker. Then I'll add the appropriate match to my "favorites" so I don't have to look again.
Also: volume measurements with non-dense dry items like seeds and grains are inherently ... iffy. Or prone to a good amount of variation. You'll get more consistency with a weight measure in ounces or grams.
I am going to send you to the USDA food database, which has several pumpkin seed options. ndb.nal.usda.gov/

I'm finding really inconsistent information about pumpkin seeds. How many calories are there in 1 T of pumpkin seeds? (Not the roasted ones, but the ones you would buy in a bulk store next to, say, sunflower seeds.)
