    700x would most likely be a better choice, if you compare the two it looks like 700x has higher pressures. Which would be advantageous in the cold weather.

    I had loaded some international clays 1 oz loads a few years ago and shot them in the Wisconsin winter. they all went bang, but there was a boatload of unburned powder in the barrel...

    I like red dot or clays for 1 oz loads in the winter.

    Some folks say e3 is the stuff for winter,b ut I had trouble getting it to meter uniformly in my MEC so I have not monkeyed with it since.

    in my experience, international clays doesn't work well for 1oz, no matter WHAT the weather. I bought a 8lb'er at the beginning of the season, because I was planning on shooting 1 1/8oz. Decided to drop back to 1oz right before the season, and didn't want to have to buy a substitute powder. Tried loading it with CCI primers, and there was ALOT of punky shells and unburned powder. Finally switched to Federal 209A primers, that solved the problem completely, but lead to me having to keep a supply of primers on hand that I don't use for anything else.

    I use Clays in the winter, spring, summer, and fall.
