I personally don't use anything finer than 320 when sanding dry. The finer grits do clog up more, as there is no way for the dust to escape. If it has to be blocked with finer, use water. It does help with the clogging and also lubricates. Using a brush to clean the paper, in my opinion, reduces the cutting of the paper. You can blow it off with air and get better results. Just make sure that you wear a face mask. You don't want to breathe in all of that dust.
