I have about 3 Nosler manuals. The 5th Edition is sitting right here. What powder do you want to use?

They show data with the 185 grain jhp with Bullseye, AA#2, Green Dot, W231, HP38, SR7625 and AA#5. Nothing real cutting edge here. You could get decent data for 185 grain bullets from Speer, Hornady, Sierra or Lyman and use it just as well IMO.

I also think the Nosler books are a bit better for rifle data. The pistol data seems way old school to me and very conservative for the most part.
