Yep, 1" down to dust, or 3/4" down to dust (road base) should be used for wall base. No stone dust, no clean stone.
The problem we have right *now* is it's all really wet from sitting in the piles at the quarry all winter. If the first 15 tons we got for our first hardscape job of the year (still in process) had been any wetter, we could have pulled it out like concrete!
Dan - I have to disagree with your comment about not using clean stone for wall base. It is actually an accepted practice by NCMA and is becoming more popular these days. As you know, clean stone should be used in all water applications as well.
