Someone gave me a couple rolls they made from a 1000' bulk roll. It's definitely the most economical choice for quality B&W. It was a bit more finicky to develop than my normal Arista Premium (Tri-X) so perhaps my results didn't reach the potential it would had I more experience, but the contrast was a bit low for me and the shadows a bit muddy. I've seen some great results from it though, I look forward to what you come up with Dave!

Nice, Dave! Haven't tried it myself, but it has economy of scale that's hard to ignore. I can see it being somewhat low contrast, being film stock and all. But a high contrast developer (or recipe) should fix that... Which of course doesn't necessarily help grain.
