Let me clarify by saying that there is MUCH more grain in my HP5+ negatives than my Tri-X.

For whatever reason, when I push my Tri-X to 1600, the grain almost disappears and I'm left with a wonderfully clear image--which is what I would like to try and achieve with HP5+ here's a picture of what I've already produced with HP5+ and a Rodinal 1:50 concentration:

Any examples of that grainless tri-x at 1600 you can show us?

Also what are your times, temps, developer and technique on your HP5? Personally I'm loving it at 800 for about 15min with Rodinal 1-50 but its certainly not grainless. For less grain I use Tmax 100/400 or Acros.

Also getting some nice look at 320 in HC-110:
