Dump a little out, compare it to other brands for size. That is how it is graded.

Then that leaves ya in puddle. I guess I can measure some and post it later if that would help. 4f is very fine,. Harzer (reenactor) has multiple sizes in it.

I found my chart:
Cannon 4.56-1.68mm
1f 1.68-1.19
2f 1,19-.59
3f .84-.29
4f .42-.15
Hope that helps

If its any use most FF grain size would be a tad bigger than the diameter of the flakes of Red Dot --FFF maybe a tad smaller - FFFFgrains about the same as bricklayers sand
