pound for gram is usually what i stick to i weigh 180lbs so i try to intake about the same amount of grams of my weight when bulking other than that i generally use information that i found on the web stating
How to Calculate Your Protein Needs:
1. Weight in pounds divided by 2.2 = weight in kg
2. Weight in kg x 0.8-1.8 gm/kg = protein gm.
Use a lower number if you are in good health and are sedentary (i.e., 0.8). Use a higher number (between 1 and 1.8) if you are under stress, are pregnant, are recovering from an illness, or if you are involved in consistent and intense weight or endurance training.
Example: 154 lb male who is a regular exerciser and lifts weights
154 lbs/2.2 = 70kg
70kg x 1.5 = 105 gm protein/day

I take in 292-295 grams of protein a day between whole foods then shakes to supplement. 70%-80% of it is from whole foods!
Carbs I take 400+ a day. This gives me the strength and muscle roundness I desire.
Do this and you will put on serious weight. Keep it Lean and Clean my firend
Remember to keep doing light cardio, once or twice a week 10-15 minutes and do abs consistantly to keep it off your stomach as much as possible!

it'll also depend on your physique/genetics, as well as if your on a cycle, etc. but normally i shoot for 1.5g/pound

1 gram per lb of body weight is doable without jacking up the rest of your diet. 8 protien shakes and 2 real meals = no growth. eat 100 grams of protien a day of real food, then count your shakes on top of that.
