Noob reloading question. For known calibers, are the older reloading manuals obsolete? Because of new powder data or new bullets available?

To rephrase: is a 1980's reloading manual i.e. the load data therein still relevant, or is it only collectors' value?
Strictly speaking of a load data perspective, they are outdated. Print media is outdated before it hits the market. The powder makers all have the latest data on their websites, and since they do the testing, I would go with their latest data.

Now all of the ballistic tables, and other stuff in most manuals is good stuff
