My dictionary says 'hran' is only before masculine nouns, but you say m&f. Is there a difference in dialects? Got it wrong using dictionary.
Dictionary is Webster's New Spanish Dictionary with Latin American Spanish.
This question relates to:Spanish lesson "Bueno, malo, grande become buen, mal, gran before a noun (apócope)"

"Gran" can be placed before a masculine or feminine noun, for example "un gran hombre" or "una gran mujer". It is different to other short forms like "buen" where you can only place it befor a masculine noun, not a feminine noun, for example "un buen hombre" but "una buena mujer".
