The 7.62x54mmR BP is an Armor-Piercing Tracer cartridge.
Shadow of ChernobylEdit
This ammunition is extremely rare and is not sold by any trader. Sixty of these bullets can be found in a secret stash in Agroprom; its coordinates can be obtained from dead Loners or Military soldiers in the area. Several more boxes can be randomly spawned in boxes in Yantar, lab X16, inside of the Sarcophagus, in the Monolith Control Center, and on the rooftops of the Chernobyl NPP.
This ammunition is even more rare in Clear Sky, it can only be found in the Duty base, where Major Zvyaginstev hosts his target practice game. You can only grab one box by jumping onto Zvyaginstev's desk, and the ammo cannot be used in any gun. It can still be sold to many traders. The ammo also has a 7.62 PP label in the menu, instead of the BP label.
