Alliants Clay Dot loads EXACTLY the same, grain for grain, as Hodgdons Clays. That would be 18.2 grs. Clay Dot, for 1200 FPS.

All you need to do is look in Hodgdons load data for Clays, and sub in the Clay Dot

As far as the wad is concerned, A Blue Duster loads the same as a WAA12, a Claybuster CB1118-12, or a Down Range DRA-12, or a Down Range XL- 1-1/8. Any or these wads can be substituted for any one of the others.

My experience is different, it depends on which AA hull you are loading. If the AACF, the Blue Duster will work fine, the DRA12 (bronze), not so much. If the AAHS, the DRA12 (bronze) works perfectly, the Blue Duster, not so much. Just my experience, using Clays, not Claydot. Both powders have similar density so the experience should be the same. But the Blue Duster and the DRA12-bronze are not the same wad.

DLM was saying that those wads were safe to interchange. Not that the fit was exactly the same. It all depends on hull and powder volume.

Thanks for the clarification. I should have prefaced my remark with something to the effect "While those wads are safe to interchange, they have different applications depending on the hull and powder density."
