    Just wanted to know if a few of you had liked the Clay Dot powder. I'm using it in AA's and an Claybuster 1100 1 oz wad with 18.3 grains of Clay Dot. Seems to do pretty well. Jim

    I switched years ago from Clays to Claydot for my 1 oz loads. Excellent results, very clean in my guns, may have gone through about 32 lb's so far, have 16 lb's sitting on the shelf now.

    Went from Clays to Clay Dot 2 yrs. ago when Clays was hard to find and priced too hi. Clay Dot is a great, clean powder made in the good old USA. Shoots great, so what is not to like????

    Fine by me, average a little higher than last years using Clays powder on the singles. Not dirty,

    I've used a few jugs of Clay Dot and it works well for lighter loads. I do not use it for anything but the lightest 1 1/8 oz loads down to 1oz and 7/8 oz loads. I don't load it hot, nor do I try to make it work in heavy handicap loads. It seems to be at it's best in larger capacity hulls like the Federal Gold Medals. Overall, it's a great powder if you use it in the right applications.

    Been using it for about 2 years myself, clean, and I like the price too. Clays was 120.00 claydot was $85.00 . I had some bloopers so I got rid of the claybuster wads and went to downrange NO bloopers, at all.

    I used 24 pounds of it and it worked very well. But I didn't feel that it gave me any real improvement over PROMO performance while costing about $10 a jug more. It was cleaner but since I clean and maintain my guns after each shoot, no matter what I load with anyway, there was no real gain there.

    I used two 8 lb jugs and found it to be a very clean, quick burning powder. I liked it much better than Red Dot, but not as much as e3. I'm currently trying Extra-Lite. I like it as well, but I always seem to go back to e3 for 7/8oz and 1oz loads.

    I've been using it for a year and like it, clean and cost less than clays. It dose burn a little faster than clays so pressures are a bit higher but not noticeably

    It is at least as good as clays.

    I use it for 1 oz and 7/8 oz loads.

    Burns very clean.

    I've used 23 jugs of the stuff since it came out. It's great as long as you keep in mind that it's a fast powder that will build pressures quickly under anything over a 1 oz. payload. The limit for 1 1/8 is 1200 fps.

    It works fine in 7/8 and 1 oz loads. I have not found a recipe for 1-1/8 oz loads that I like. I burns claen and with good pressures. It's made in the USA and cheaper than Clays. What more could you want? Paul in Nebraska
