  One reason for this might be that Agfa 130 has much more
Potassium Bromide it in than Dektol/D-72, assuming the
Formulary version is the published formula and that Dektol
is pretty close to D-72. D-72 specifies 1.8 grams per liter
of stock and 130 specifies 5 grams per liter of stock. More
bromide can be added to either. Agfa/Ansco 130 is very
similar to D-72 but has 11 grams per liter of stock of
Glycin added plus the additional bromide.
