AMBER: intrinsic born radius of Br

Dear amberites,

I prepared a prmtop file for a molecule containing a bromine atom.
I used mboni radii ("set default PBradii mbondi" in leap).
In the RADII section of the prmtop file I see a value of 1.5 assigned to
the Br atom.

Is this value correct? Chlorine gets a value of 1.7, i.e. its radius is
significantly larger than the Br radius!?

Thanks very much,

Oliver Hucke, Dr.
