Look at the PSI. PSI is PSI regardless of R12, R22 or R134. The "scales" you are looking at are temperature estimates based on pressure.
The most accurate way to charge an A/C system is by weight. But you need a really accurate scale (no bathroom jobs).
Typically we get the low side to about 30 psi and the high to 225. Unplug the temp sensor off the radiator so both fans come on, and have someone (or something) hold the rpm to about 2500.
