It's already been done-
Lee's Second edition lists 160 cartridge types and over 28,000 loads--150 powders--and their manual is the same size as Noslers. Very little empty white space, lots of info.

Nosler listed 6 loads in their manual and 4 on their website. In their manual there is 2 1/2 inches of empty space
on their page for the 357 max and most
load pages are like that. Almost as much white space as the space they use for their load chart. Even more white space on their web site-a lot more
Dan said- "Nosler shows EXACTLY the same starting and max loads, and EXACTLY the same velocities they showed in the number 5 manual"
Hornady states on their website--
Why does load data listed in other manufacturer’s loading manuals differ from others when loading the same cartridge?
Several factors can cause this. The size of the specific firearm chamber and throat dimensions, seating depth, bullet profile, propellant variances andcrimping depth can all contribute to variations in load data. The data found in the Hornady loading manual represents actual results derived in the HornadyBallistics Laboratory.
Nosler is probably telling the truth about developing their loads in their brass--but when did that happen?
I like and use Nosler bullets-357,44, 243,223-my opinion-especially 44 mag. I also use Hornady, Berry,lead cast, Remington and others----
but as is my choice-I go elsewhere for load data. Just my opinion.
also--I agree 100%--"I think when someone expresses an opinion, it should be taken as just that "
