Yes except the flakes are a little smaller and thinner for Bullseye and it is a faster burning powder than Power pistol...

Yes, I am well aware of the Redding product and I use the LEE 10mm/40S&W FCD die with its guts removed for that process personally on 10mm, 40S&W, 357Sig and 9x25Dillon.  I even run the 380ACPand the 45ACP  through it appropriate FCD for the purpose of reaching the areas not reached by convention sizing dies.  9mm parabellum is a bit more of a challenge as I use the Lee 9MM MAKAROV Carbide Factory Crimp Die.

The brass that has the smile line need to be discarded because that brass started to shear and can not be fixed! :o
