My go to is the Lyman kidding book but online is great asset and I’m using it more and more. As a big Sierra bullet fan their data has worked time and time again

Online, always, and only from the powder manufacturer's website.

As believe it or not powder doesn't stay the same and, more to the point, powder manufacturers often revise what was recommended some years ago to what is recommended nowadays. One powder that had changes over the years was original, as sold by Hodgon, surplus 4831 to today's "various" manufacturers powder called IMR 4831 and H4831. Whether post 2003 they are now (as Hodgdon took over IMR that year) the same or different I don't know. But certainly it's the best illustration as why the current maker's website is the best source for loading recommendations.

Printed manuals are useful but they aren't always up to date.

I use both Lyman and Lee manuals.
On line is a useful addition as long as you know what you’re doing, but the manuals have lots of useful additional data.
Manuals also list selections of different propellant alternatives on the same page.
