Supposed to be underpowered but some of the early lots were made at full power.

It's NOT AP. Its 62 gr, lead core, with a steel penetrator in the tip.

The Brits had to put less powder in their 5.56mm NATO cartridges to get their L85A1 rifles to function properly. Not sure when they did this but some RG84 ammo I tested was full velocity. -- Chuck
