In the lovely Personal Weapons Guide for T20, there is a small comment regarding AP ammo as being '-5 PV' However, there is no indication as to what PV is (there is a comment about shotgun ammo being -1 PV per range increment which seems to confuse the issue further).

Am I missing a reference in that book or in the T20 main book somewhere? What might this be?

I think it was supposed to be for Penetration Value, as a measure against armor, but somewhere along the way the rules changed and the reference didn't get edited. But that's just a guess. You will want to check out the errata files for the book if you haven't. While not complete they will help a bit.

You know, they don't explain it, but I think someplace in one of the books, it does say that the PV value of the ammo is subtracted from the AR of the target for determining damage, before the damage itself gets reduced. I don't know where I read that, but I definately remember it. though, they did not in fact say what PV actually stood for, Penetration Value sounds as good as anything.
