Default question about Ingredients

I was going to brew a recipe I found online. In the recipe it calls for 1/2 lb. medium crystal malt and 1/2 lb. light crystal malt. I am putting it in to beer smith 2 and what should I use for these 2 ingredients? I was thinking Caramel/crystal malt-40 for the medium and Caramel/crystal malt-10 for the light malt. Does that sound right? I am making an alaskan amber clone I found online.

I think of crystal 60L as "medium" . I'd consider crystal 10L or 20L to be "light".
