First off, ya don't need 400ft to practice. None of the 16mm cameras have any "got ya's" with 400ft of film. I always do dummy testing with a little 50ft load because you want to run the camera when you do it and if you have 400ft of film, you should roll it all the way through or risk scratching/damaging it on rewind. So we always test with 50 - 100ft and that works the best. The other neat trick is to use double perf stock, so you don't have to rewind after use. 

I sadly don't have any spare double perf right now, people have gobbled it all up over the years. 😞
