I could do some 1.25 oz target loads for them so they should be close to same.
You can not substitute bismuth for lead shot and have the same pressure. Bismuth will create higher pressures than lead. I doubt you can find a published 1.25 ounce 12ga load using Green Dot with bismuth. 12ga bismuth loads use slower powders like Herco, Blue Dot and Longshot.
