Charging a converted system is an art, not a science. If you just dump in a weighed amount that some Internet armchair "expert" claimed was right, you'll be wrong, guaranteed. You'll be under or overcharged, neither of which lend themselves to good cooling.
I may have not received the situation well, but you're right. Turns out I have a show leak.
