Here is a list that I roughed out a while back for an unofficial bomb load / points that might give you a start point.

Sopwith 1½ Strutter Two Seat - 60 / 130 --------------------------- 6pts / 3pts

LFG Roland C.II - 50 / 110 ----------------------------------------------- 6pts / 3pts

Friedrichshafen G.III - 1000 / 2205 --------------------------------------- 110pts / 55pts
Gotha G.V - 500 / 1102 ---------------------------------------------------- 55pts / 27pts
Zeppelin Staaken R.VI - 2000 / 4410 ---------------------------------- 220pts / 110pts - maybe option to split load down further ?

Near misses count as half total drawn.

Above drawn from info by dividing the poundage of bombs carried by 20 - with a base full load minimum of 5 as that destroys a trench.
