Been using it for 9mm,.38 wadcutter, and .45acp for just about twenty years in a Pro-1000. There's a little leakage, but I'm told the new style wiper does a good job of fixing that. I'm just punching paper and not pushing max loads, but I seem to be able to hold + or - 1/10th grain variation just fine....

I have used Bullseye in my Pro Auto Disk for 9mm and not had any problems.

Use BE in my green machine (RCBS) for years and has worked fine for several loads/weapons. I weigh random loads but only 1 in 100.

I use bullseye for 90% of my handgun loads and have never had a problem with it metering from my lee powder measure.

bullseye

I understand that bullseye was dust from making shotgun powder.it worked so well they began to make it on purpose.
lymans #47 reloading book shows the powder.does any one here read the manuals.spend hundreds on tools and have to drag you screaming to read the basics.I guesss I'm getting to old and crockity.

I've got a Lyman 47. Bullseye is not ball. I've got a Lyman 45. Bullseye is not ball. Still though it feeds through my Lyman 55 and Dillon. I wouldn't call it dust though. Can't find a smilie so HEE HEE

I find that Bullseye meters much better in my Redding powder measure than does Unique.
