I came up with a formula that works. I compared it to the one that Kevin developed and it is bang on.

Explosive DPW Formula
((Explosive weight in kg / 0.563) x 1300) x RE

RE (Relative Effectiveness) Values for Explosive Fillers

PETN: 1.25
RDX: 1.22
Nitroglycerin: 1.12
Composition B: 1.01
Composition A4: 1.01
Composition C4: 1.00
Torpex: 0.94
Tetryl: 0.94
Tetrytol 75/25: 0.90
Amatol 80/20: 0.88
Pentolite: 0.88
Tritonal: 0.83
TNT: 0.75
Explosive D: 0.74
Picric Acid: 0.70
M1 Dynamite: 0.69
Guncotton: 0.69
Dynamite (60%): 0.62
Nitrostarch: 0.60
Gelignite (60%): 0.57
Dynamite (40%): 0.49
Black Powder: 0.41
Mercury Fulminate: 0.38
Ammonium Nitrate: 0.31
Gelignite (40%): 0.31
Lead Azide: 0.29

To convert real world explosive RE values, times it by 0.75 to come up with
The Morrow Project ones.
