The pinkish stuff is unlike any B&W film I've ever seen, but the guy I bought the stuff from says he never bulk loaded anything but B&W. It's a fairly thick base, like Tri-X, which is why I thought maybe they had changed the base sometime in the last 20 years or so.
I'm going to load it into cartridges, starting with a roll of about 10 frames. I'll shoot 2 frames at 50, 2 at 100, 20 at 200, and 2 at 400, developed normally and see what turns out. Plus, of course, I can read the writing on the edge.
I'm getting really curious now.
I'm also pretty much convinced, from what I can find, that the other 6 rolls are Panatomic X, so I'm going to shoot those carefully. I used to love that film.
On the other hand, I just got 18 rolls of FP4+, and I love that one, too.
