MF.87… was not the first year of SCAMP Production in Australia…I have some “Draw sets” (unfinished cases, untrimmed, cylindrical, with rim, etc ) as early as 85; but MF.86… did go out to Troop trials (have spent range Brass of 1986).
MF went back to Berdan (7,62) in 1989-90-91; as the SCAMP machinery was returned in 1989 ( There is no Boxer “AFF…89…”, only BERDAN AFF89 and AFF90; Old Machinery(?) was used for Boxer AFF 91 in both calibres. New Facility at Benalla (Vic) started Production in 1995, (5,56 only) with New European-made Machinery.
During the Years 1985 and 2000, MF bought in a lot of FN, IMI, PSD, and RG ammunition to make up for MF/AFF/ADI production shortfalls.
