This all applies to .40, .45 and 9mm.
I have had almost the exact opposite experience with Bullseye versus W231, at least when it comes to accuracy. I find Bullseye more accurate in most loads over W231.

As far as metering better, I would agree it meters much better than Unique, but Bullseye drops just as consistently for me as W231.

All in all, I am pretty much splitting hairs with these observations as the differences are not big with most pistol loads in any case, at least that has been my experience.
