    It can make worlds of difference! It can raise the working pressure of a round beyond safe limits in some cases. Look carefully at the components used in the two manuals - are they exactly the same? Are one or more of the components (case, powder, bullet style/manufacturer) different? These seemingly insignificant things can change a safe load into a dangerous one. :eek:

    In other loadings it may not make much of a difference at all - but you can't tell until you touch them off. :confused:

    I would tend to bet that the primer manufacturer is different or the powder is different.
