I agree with T-max 400 in T-max developer. Keeping properties of the T-max developer are similar to Rodinal.
I also agree that there is even less visible grain in the chromogenic b&w films.
Tmax in XTol 1:1 - you won't get finer grain at 400 ASA - you get coarser grain with most 100 ASA films.
Can anyone give me general processing times for TMax 400 as well as, Delta 400 and FP5+ using 510Pyro semi stand. 1:300 at 70 to 75 degrees.
35mm as well as 120

Reason: wanted to add 120
What works for me is Delta 400 roll film with an EI of 200 processed in Thornton's two-bath but it depends upon what you like to shoot.
All images on my website use this combination.
My standard print size is in 6 x 7 ratio on 30 x 40 paper with a 1cm border the top and bottom and the grain is minimal.
