    For 1 ounce and 1 1/8 ounce 16 yard loads – From prices I see – An 8 pound jug of Clays powder is about $10 higher than an 8 pound jug of Red Dot – that is $20 on a 2 jug case. Is Clays worth the extra money?

    It's mostly about choice, some choose to pay more thinking they get more, not true with shotgun powders. Hap

    go with cp's recommendation. Promo is cheaper, but if you live in cold climates and shoot in the winter, you may have problems with bloopers. Clay Dot and Clays are so alike you will not be able to tell them apart on any reasonable functional basis. Clay Dot is $82/8lb around my neck of the woods. Clays is $99/8lb. Red Dot is a touch slower than either Clays or Clay Dot, is a little dirties, and cost $3 more per jug than Clay Dot.

    Do the math with one of the free reload cost calculators. You'll find less than a penny per shot difference. What is really important to you? Cost or confidence?
