Hodgdon Powder



Mfg Part#



Hodgdon Clays Shotshell & Handgun Powder is also available in a universal formula, both outstanding options for people who prefer reloading. Compared to other powders of its kind, this particular powder has been shown to outperform. This is one of the most consistent but also cleanest burning powders used for 12 gauge 7/8-, 1-, and 1 1/8-ounce cartridges.

The powder is a favorite among competitive target shooters, and because of its burning qualities, it produces a smooth and soft recoil, coupled with outstanding patterns needed for handgun applications, including the .38 Special and .45 ACP.

Hodgdon Clays Shotshell & Handgun Powder 8 lbs is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Powder For 9mm Reloads I use Clays for my IDPA competition loads (3.7 grains for 124 plated round nose bullet, OAL ~ 1.150. I've used Federal match, Winchester, CCI and REmington small pistol primers with Clays, and they all seem to work well with it. For those of you that are wondering about PF, I get about 133-135. Recoil is low, but it will run my gun (Springfield XDM), i.e. no stove piping, slide cycles well. If there are any downsides, it would be that the flakes are large and I get noticeable spillage on my Dillon 650. It is not as if half the powder ends up on the floor, but if you use Titegroup, pretty much all of it stays in the cartridge, and that is not the case with Clays. It is a little messy. Clays burns comparatively cleanly, although I suppose someone finds some other product better in that regard. Overall, if you can get it, Clays is a great choice for 9mm. I hope it is available the next time I need some.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best 12 Gauge Used this for years - when it is available. The best powder there is for 12 gauge light and moderate loads. After firing, peak down the barrel and it looks like it hasn't been shot! Cleans remarkably easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally Have been looking for Hodgdon Clays powder for a long time ( over a year). Each place I look is sold out. I didn't need to get the 8 lb but I am glad I did. It may take me awhile to use all of it , but it shoots nice like I was told it would. Thank you for having the powder!
