There's a graph somewhere on here. I think it even has X-ray oils. Ill scan it later for you if you don't have any luck.

And which oil is more accurate as far as weight, or does everyone use their own measuring procedures/system/equipment?

See attached PDF file for the shock oil chart I referenced above. You can print it in landscape mode and it will legibly fit on one 8.5x11 sheet of paper. Print it in color for best readability.
