I have a pound of wheat DME left over from an American Wheat brew. Can I use this as priming sugar when I bottle?

I have some wheat DME left over from my last brew and am considering using it for bottle priming. The guy at my LHBS said to use 8oz DME per 5 gallons but I don't have a scale to measure it. He also didn't recommend using volume measurement and I can understand why but I was curious as to how much 'fudge' room you have with priming sugars. I don't want to under carbonate and I don't want bottle bombs obviously.
