When I buy a hundred feet roll, am I buying a hundred feet or am I getting a few feet more?

What about a four-hundred feet roll? Would that break down into equal one-hundred feet lengths, or would there be some extra feet to spare?

Or... if I broke a four-hundred feet roll down into four rolls, would I have the same amount on each roll as if I had bought each roll separately?

Does that make sense?

breaking a 400ft roll to 4 100 foot rolls wont be worth the hassle. Just get what you need. 100 feet is 100 feet.

They're actually 110' and 410' rolls. Kodak & Fuji give you an extra 10' for loading purposes.

Though 100' loads of short ends are usually an even 100', unlike factory loads.
