Developer and method of development also play an important part. Some developers won't deliver full emulsion speed, while others will. Assuming your developer does, and you overexpose by 1/2 stop, that's no disaster. If your developer doesn't then you might be underexposing by up to 1/2 stop, which isn't a disaster either. Good luck.
Thanks for the info. I don't have any AZO (yet).

I have some "original" Zone VI Brilliant Grade #2 (White Box) that I was planning to use to contact print the negatives on.
