Default Clays vs. Clay Dot???

Need y’all’s help and wisdom.

I've been running into issues finding the jugs of Clays and I hate buying the small containers.

I found Clay Dot at a good price so I picked up a few. Well my book doesn’t say anything about it and my reloader is set for what my son and I have been shooting for trap and I don’t want to experiment for the next month or three.

Right now I’m loading 17.8 gr of clays with 1 1/8 #8. What do you use with Clay Dot? Or, what is the calculated difference between Clays and Clay Dot?

Thanks in advance.
