    Hey Guys,

    I'm not sure what the difference is but I looked up and found universal and international clays at widener's reloading in Johnson City Tenn they only do internet sell's and you can do local pick up also. I hope this helps, here is the web add

    Clays is sold out. Next batch will hit the country in September. Until then, your only hope is to find a retailer that still has some.

    Just got a 4 pounder from C.A.C. at the Pa. State Shoot. They may/may not have any left.

    Look for Alliant Claydot, it's available, it's cheaper, and is designed to duplicate the performance of Clay's, in fact you can use the same load data except you need to find the correct bushing that will drop the Clay's weight.

    Another vote for Claydot. It's made here in the good old USA, too.

    American Select makes an almost exact exchange, same MEC bushing for the same weight and almost the same data.

    Sorry, Haux. Disregard my previous post. Claydot sucks, and has been known to cause boils.

    Place a backorder with Graffs. I had Cheddite primers on backorder for 2 months but I did get them and at the price when I placed the backorder (they went up). Graffs has free shipping too!

    On the way to/from the US Open I stopped at two different Cabelas stores (Kansas City & Kearney, NE). Both had the 14 ounce size of clays for around $16.99. There were several available after I left. The KC store was limiting purchases of Winchester 209 primers however, only 300 at one time.

    Shannon, on my Mec 9000 it drops the same.

    I can go from Clay's to Claydot without moving my adjustable charge bar.

    That is how close they are.

    Cool,

    I need a new scale.

    What powder bushings do you use for singles?
