    Ok, I'm tired tonite, so I'll be generous... There is a SEARCH function...PLEASE learn to use it. It will find you a plethora of information on most subjects.

    just enter clay dot powder and check for all words...

    I use it, excellent powder. Try this for a load:

    Remington hull (any), 17.5 grains clay dot, Downrange XL1 wad, 1 oz #8, Nobel Sport primer. Shoots nice, clocks about 1150-1200, I use it for everything. I change the wad to a DR Jammer XL1 and shot size to #9 for skeet.

    Clay dot is supposed to perform like Clays .... NOT international clays as mentioned above.

    Also in the new downloadable version of alliants book and in their online load database they have loads for claydot.

    I have just begun to use it and I like it a lot. more economical than clays too

    Hey tuscarora99 where you were? I shot on squad 5/4, and was wearing the Kolar hat, hoping you'd look me up. That's a great venue and nice club and location. The birds were great and as always, I enjoyed your clubs hospitality.

    So far as the Clay Dot info is concerned, in my hands with the PW bushings, it seems to throw about 1/2 grain heavier using a J1 bushing. For instance Clays throws 18.9 and Clay Dot 19.4. Using their early data I simply substituted one for the other, and don't feel uncomfortable using Hodgen's data to load Clay Dot for any application. Clay Dot seems to be as clean, and is cheaper to burn .....plus they gave me a cool hat. Hopefully that helps ...mike.

    Duke 2005 is wrong, that's why it's up to you to go to the manufacturer's web site and get verified data. International Clays and ClayDot are NOT interchangeable.

    I perfer the 2 3/4 dram 1150fps 1 1/8 oz loads for all my trap shooting.

    Firearm:Caesar Guerini Magnus 34" Full choke = .036 restriction

    Remington hull - gun club - STS

    Win 209, PW 'H' bushing - 16.7grns Clay Dot, blue duster wad = 1170 fps over ProCrono

    Federal Top Gun

    Win 209, PW "I" bushing - 17.3grns Clay Dot, CB 'fig 8' = 1155 fps over ProCrono

    Win 209, PW "J1" bushing - 18.1grns Clay Dot, CB 'fig 8' = 1170 fps over ProCrono

    Clay Dot is my prefered powder after switching from PB.

    Mike i shot on squad 19. I messed up on the first trap and that just put me in a bad mood. The birds were good though. I broke an 87. I saw that you broke a 91.

    Yeah, I dropped three birds on the singles, which is a lot; but we can blame the sun. Funny thing is, 91 paid OK in the Lewis, but 94 would have paid a lot more. Steve Amos was on my squad and he chased a bird on handicap from the 4th trap that literally went straight up in the air. Everyone just stopped and looked in disbelief.

    Next week I'll play the purse, because, for some reason scores always seem better at Greencastle. See U next Sunday.

    I can bring a handfull of #7 1/2, 1 1/8oz handicap loaded with 19.4gr of Clay Dot and Remington Fig 8 wads for you to try, if you'd like. They run a little over 1,200fps. mike

    Greencastle is really a very nice facility. The layout and clubhouse are 1st class. The trap fields face North East, and once the sun is up the targets are very nicely presented, with a bank of traps nicely separated and good parking behind, with benches and gun racks. The background is just about perfect. There's a practice trap on the left facing the same direction, nearest the clubhouse that also is used for doubles. The Westerly winds are blocked by buildings and big trees and the Southern exposure also tree lined. The targets are properly presented according to ATA regs. The large clubhouse is modern and nicely appointed and comfortable, with clean spacious rest rooms, and a first class kitchen. mike
