I didn't notice too much of a difference between #7 and #8 on pistol powders but on three rifle calibers I am working with right now , 6.8 spc , 300 blk and 6.5 creedmoor, there was quite a bit more info including more bullet sizes and some more (newer) powders.
The newer powders for 6.8 spc were LT-30 and 1200-MR.
I see more powders like,Hunter ,Big Game ,RL17, MRP and so on a lot more often.
If you already have #7 and you load established calibers then the upgrade to #8 might not be worth it. I think there is enough difference especially in 300 blk and 6.5 creedmoor that for me it was worth it.

Mostly rifle data

I like the manual so no bashing here.

Everything I checked is on their web site so most likely you can look at it on line then decide if it is for you.

It is my first Nosler so I have nothing to compare it to.

I don't have it in front of me but I think there were hundreds pages of rifle data and only 57 or so of handgun.

Most likely it covers every bullet Nosler makes.
