Default Volume Fader versus Clip Game

Hi, I am tracking an electric bass. It's quite hot, which I like. Peaking around -5dbFS. To give myself more headroom during mixing, I need to drop the track by about 10dBFS.I don't want to do it on the source side, because I like driving the tube amp. On Pro Tools side, I thought I clip gain. Seems like a great solution. But then I noticed the Volume fader on the mix window. I have to admit, I don't know precisely how it works. What would be the difference from removing 10dbFS with clip gain versus dropping the volume fader on the mix window?
