I got emery grit no. 80, 120, 150, 180 ,303, 301 with my mirror kit.

I am on to 120 grit now but i have found that the graing of the 150 grit i received are a lot larger than 120 grit. I am not sure of the quality because this is the best i can get here (in India). But do you think the fellow has put the label on the worng bottle or something like that ?

Maybe this is the reason why i couldnt grind out the pits previously(message posted on 6th nov)

Now that i have already done a lot of grinding with 120(??) grit should i directly proceed to a finer grit or go back to the coarser 150 grit and repeat everything else.

Please help
