Overhauls old ammo and changes them to be different from the normal ammo. Version 1.2. For 1.5.1
Added Patches for Grok's Ballistics Overhaul 1.1.6 and Provaks Weapon Overhaul (With trader files).
Changed 7.62x51 BPZ FMJ to Ultra Nosler (Lower Armor-pierce, higher tissue damage).
More consistency changes for text descriptions.
Added optional trader files to make them sell and buy old ammo.
Included patches for Boomstick & Sharpsticks 1.5.1, Trader Overhaul 1.26 (Outfit and B&S versions included) and VanillaTradeFixes.
If added to a existing save you have to wait for the trader resupply for them to appear.
If you find something broken or misplaced in the files let me know!
We have a ammo wheel so might a well use all of it. I almost never used old ammo for anything else that selling them for money.
All old ammo expect old explosives and gauss have been changed to something different than the original "new" ammo. also removed the extra damage to condition when firing them (few exceptions).
Optional files for traders added. Without them you most likely get them by looting dead stalkers or breaking boxes.
Also doesn't change icons or any textures.
Examples of change ammo:
Icon mod used:
Also changed the armor performance standard to GOST (Pre-2017) from NIJ
nothing real changes other than the text classifying the highest pierce-able armor class
Armor classes goes from: Class 1 to 6A (lowest - highest)

This is a proof of concept. feel free to make your own edits and patches and upload them.
I wanted to make this mod for myself and felt like uploading it so here you have it.
Nothing is balanced just spitballed looking at some eft ammo tables. No ammo was made up just looked up for information about them.
Where to install
Copy ammo overhaul gamedata folder to main game folder
Optional files - Install the Mods you want then apply the patches after that. Patches won't work without the required mods.
Use Mod Organizer 2 for easier mod management
inheritly compatable with Boomstick & Sharpsticks.
the ammo file has the B&S ammos in them already.
propably wont break if used in with vanilla only, but what do i know?
Original version changes these files:
To get rid of "Old" prefix in front of the old ammo i had to edit ui_item_script:
line 128 & 129:
str_tbl.cap_old = gc("st_cap_old")
str_tbl.cap_bad = gc("st_cap_verybad")
str_tbl.cap_old = gc("")
str_tbl.cap_bad = gc("")
didn't find other way to do it so...
Optional files changes:
configs/items/trade/presets/trade_presets.ltx - line 1960: [Supplier] removed ammo_bad so you can sell old ammo to everyone that buys ammo.
configs/items/trade/ - Most traders that sell ammo have been changed.
Nothing else, good luck stalkers.
