leak proof bomb failure?

A quick flash of the brake light when first braking hard can also be an
indicator, no?

Do we still have options for re-charging bombs?  A search of the
archives shows Russ is no longer (or was not) re-charging any longer?
unless he has resumed or someone has picked up where he left off?

Have you done the "bomb" test?  That is, run engine till you get good
brakes, turn off engine, pump the pedal until it gets hard and count
number of pumps.  0-5 or so is a dead bomb.  5-10 is barely functional
and above is acceptable.  A good bomb gives 25-30 pumps before the
gets hard.

If you've got a functional bomb, you probably have a failing pump.
