I ordered some glossy 5 X 7 RC paper from a local supplier, and after two weeks of being "back-ordered" they sent me this message:

"Regarding your order for the Ilford MGR 1M 5x7 - 250 sheets, the Ilford MGR paper has been discontinued by Ilford. The substitute that they suggest is ( Ecode 116761 ) MGIV.1M 5x7-250."

On the phone, he tells me that the replacement recommended by Ilford is not "multi-grade", but really grade 4 paper. That doesn't sound right to me, but he claims to be quoting Ilford.

I am totally confused. Can anyone shed any light on this? All I originally wanted was glossy multigrade RC paper.
