I have 400ft of 250D it was neglected, not refrigerated, but probably had most of its life slightly under room temperature. Dummy load or perhaps have some fun with it. Its about a year old. How sensitive is film to hazing or other strange things.

Only way i know of to be sure of the level of problem with the film would be a clip test from a lab. It'll let you know how much fogging has happened to the film, and therefore how to expose to get above that base fog level. They're cheap, call your local lab for pricing.

A snip test will tell you want you need to know for sure. But I also want to add that 7246 is a pretty hardy stock. A year a room temp will most likely have no effect. I shot 7246 that was stored at room temp for 3 years and the results were fine. I did snip test it first and the test showed it was still well within range.
