Need for reloading manual?

I was thinking about getting a new loading manual the other day but decided against it. It seems like most component producers do a pretty good job of posting load data on thru their websites. In fact I put together of ton of good stuff from several different manufactuers. So I guess my question would be is there any reason for a semi-experienced handloader with web acess need to buy a manual? Keep in mind I am talking about load data from the manufactuers website and NOT what Joe Bob posted as his "pet load." Lets hear it!

    Really, it seems to be up to your comfort level. Personally, I have the Speer book that I got for free. It's a good reference for specs on cases etc as well as load data. It serves as a benchmark when you read "joe-bob's" pet load on the internet.

    I buy another new one every few years. Don't ever plan on stopping.

    and that's fine.....but how about an explanation of why? Just asking....as I don't use one either and don't see what they have to offer now days with all the electronic information we have access to.

    My last one was purchased in 1970. The numbers were way better back then.
