I have 5 of those bulk loaders, each with a different film.
I have three of them as Kaiser models, I think they are all pretty much the same.
Dependent upon whether you have a wide body or a short body 35mm camera, you may wish to add or subtract a frame or two.
For instance my Nikon F3 is a wide body camera and slightly more film is exposed as you load the camera, however my Olympus XA is a very narrow camera and requires a minimal amount of leader to start it up
I load 37 frames for my F3 and get 36 frames, for the XA I load 35 frames and get 36 frames.
I would suggest that you don't load much more than 38 frames, 39 tops, unless you have a load of very, very thin film. The cassette gets too full and you cannot turn it properly when it is in the camera.
That loader is excellent as there is a trap door which opens when everything is closed, allowing the film to pass through with nary a scratch.
I've been bulk loading since the sixties non stop.
You will get 18, 36 exposure rolls and about another 10 to 18 frames spare, depends upon how you load from one spool of film.
