YO ! I found a cassette of ILFORD Delta 3200 in film fridge so thought I would see how it performed in my Home -Made 510-Pyro 1:100 Staining Film Dev -- no 'Date' but must be at least 12 years outdated.
First strip was 800, 1600 and 3200 for 12 mins -- Very THIN NEGS -- Second Strip was 200, 400 and 800 ASA for 18 mins @ 20oC -- RESULT - BETTER but of course a High Fog Level -- I had used my 'Gift' Asahi Pentax Spotmatic- F -- So I loaded camera again and ventured out into the Wilds of Brentwood High Street using a 'Little GEM' the SMC - Takumar 35mm f2.8 lens Here a a few worth showing - all 1/500th second used .

Ooohh, grainy!

I don't think there was an f/2.8 Takumar 35mm.

Ha Ha !!! I put the WRONG LENS ON ! It was my 3.5 28mm NOT the 35mm ! Just CHECKED !
Oh well -- TODAY went out with THAT lens on and used up the last short bit of that very old Ilford Delta 3200 and rated it 250 ASA this time and got better stained negs in the 510-Pyro

All worth the effort Peter. Some really good reportage/street scenes and characters in there.

Best regards
Inspiration is rarer than a plate glass camera.....
