This gets asked a lot, so here's a handy chart to figure things out.
To find your dose: If you normally use freebase and have one of the salts, divide your freebase dose by the % salt. For instance, if you normally use 4-HO-DMT freebase, and you now have fumarate, and your dose was 20mg freebase, divide 20mg by .7787 to get roughly 26mg fumarate.
Conversely, if you have freebase 4-HO-DMT and before dosed with the fumarate, multiply your dose by the percentage. In example, 26mg fumarate multiplied by .7787 is about 20mg freebase.
The weight vs. the indolol tells the mass difference between the respective ester and the free alcohol compound (eg 4-HO-DMT vs. 4-AcO-DMT). This could be useful if you wanted to measure the weight of the indolol versus the ester and try to adjust the dose according, as well.
Remember, digital scales are only accurate to +/- the smallest increment of reading -- eg, if your scale reads to 0.001g, and you measure out 0.016g, the actual value will be 0.016g +/i 0.001g, or anywhere between 0.0015g to 0.0017g. If your scale only weighs to 0.01g, don't use it to dose! Weighing out 0.01g could give you anywhere from 0.00g to 0.02g -- that's the range 0-20mg!
(If you're wondering why the above is true, you have to factor in the drift upon calibration, 0.005g, and the drift upon weighing, which is 0.005g. Altogether, +/- 0.01g)
