    I have been using Hodgdon Clays for my 16-yard targets and first shot of doubles. How does Clay Dot compare? Thanks in advance.

    It's close enough that you won't notice a difference...except in the price. Even thought Alliant advertises it as a direct replacement for Clays, be sure to verify the Clay Dot drop weights with a good scale.

    Clay Dot is a pretty good powder, as good as Clays in my mind.

    I had to change to Clay Dot from Clays and I found it's just about the same. However, I use a little less. It has a little more kick and is a touch dirty as compared to Clays. A lot cheaper during normal times.

    Pretty dirty...My hands are totally black after reloading, but shoots fine and less $$ than Clays. Have gone through several pounds of both. Hard to find ANY components right now:(
