" A variety of 5.8mm rounds. To decipher the names, use the guide below:

D = 弹 = Bullet/Round,
B = 步枪 = Assault Rifle
P = 普通 = Common/Standard
F = 橡皮(复合) = Rubber/Composite
X = 曳光 = Tracer
V = 重弹 = Heavy Round
C = 穿甲 = Armor Piercing

So DBP means Common Assault Rifle Round , DVC means Armor Piercing Heavy Round, and so on and on."
