Durum flour substitute

I want to make a bread that calls for durum flour, but I don't have any on hand.  Is there anything that is a good substitute?  Thanks.

Semolina flour if you have it or can find it easily.  If not, just regular bread or all purpose flour will do.

but I have a fairly trustworthy chart that lists 1 US cup of Durum flour = 170g; and 1 US cup of APF/Bread Flour = 130g. (Farina or "Cream of Wheat" is about 175g per US cup)

Just a heads-up...you should be able to increase the mass/weight  (if you're baking that way) a little when you substitute and judge the "feel" of the dough.

(Not sure if this helps...probably too late to the party, anyway...just FYI)

Best of luck,
