An 8 oz cup by volume is different than 8 ounces by weight, which is why there are dry and liquid measuring cups. I have a set of metal 1 cup, 1/2 cup, 1/3 cup, and 1/4 cup measuring cups, and that's what I use for dog food. I have no idea what the weight actually comes out to.
You can use either grams or cups once you figure out what the right amount of food is for him, just realize that they won't be equivalent to each other. And as he continues to grow, the quantity of food he'll need will change. Rather than try to figure out how many kcals my dogs should need I just go by their condition to determine if they're getting the right amount, and adjust as necessary to maintain lean condition with a discernible waist when viewing from above, and a nice tuck up at the abdomen when viewing from the side.
