Default Rectifier voltage drop question

I am a little confused on how to calculate a Rectifier forward voltage drop. Or where to look it up.

I found this helpful chart attached. But I do see differing values in different places.

I want to model a PS with a 274B but there is no 274B available in the program. I can use a similar tube to make sure I have most parameters in line, but the final voltages will be different. I don't yet have enough built to plug in and compare, and anyway, I really need the full amp so I can see what it does under load. A calculation to see the ballpark would be nice.

Thanks!
