    Some more than others

    Any edition will be good. They are compiled by a team of editors of many different authors' submissions. The nice thing about them is that there are many different "voices" and some that "speak" to you will make up for others that do not resonate with your thought processes as well.

    The same reasoning applies to having multple single-author manuals as well, in addition to having emprical data from different ballistics labs for comparison/verification purposes.

    Variety is not only the spice of life, but variation gives perspective and depth to your view.

    Lost sheep is absolutely correct about variation and voices and speaking to you.

    Personally, I would focus on a "later" / newer edition--as mentioned above, all of them will be good for the novice / first-time reader, but the newer ones will discuss current issues or use current perspectives. That may help you with understanding what you will be reading on forums.

    I think the "8th Edition" is the current one

    (I picked up a new one in February and that's what it is)
