    Is there a way to make a BW print using a color negative with MC paper?

    Because different levels of magenta would probably screw up the contrast in different parts of the paper...

    Do I really have to get graded paper if I want to print them?

    Just try it. I think it's trickier than printing from a BW neg, but it can be done. Some negs will be more problematic than others. My experience is that they tend to need a lot of added contrast, and that the grain is a lot more evident in BW than color.
