The current data is only 12.7 grains. The old data is 16% higher than current print. This is additional evidence to never rely on any single data point for loads.
On a side note, I picked up the most recent Loadbooks. There are a lot of changes there too. The Hornady data above has not yet been corrected.
Noteably, the infamous IMR 800-X with 135 Nosler load is gone.
I'll occassionally pull a load out of an Hornady manual whcih won't even cycle the slide on any of my automatics. To say that they are usually conservative, is an understatement.
