Okay, I know that there are several places where I can find Lea's Landscape #7 recipe. But I still have a question, hope I don't ask too much. :)
One recipe goes like this:
300 ml USP Collodion
250 ml Alcohol
75 ml Ether
1,5 gr Cadmium Bromide
1,3 gr Ammonium Bromide
3,4 gr Cadmium Iodide
2,6 gr Ammonium Iodide

Then I read from the manual of photography and there stands like this, I have transformed fluid ounces and grains to more understandable form (at least for me):
Alcohol 4,5dl
Ether 4,5dl
Bromide cadmium 2,3 g
Iodide cadmium 5,2g
Bromide ammonium 1,95g
Iodide ammonium 3,9g

What I don't understand is that Pyroxyline 180 grains, how is that transformed to plain collodion. I tried to read that manual of photography, but couldn't find the answer.
