This is because the Amber ASCII trajectory format is a fixed 8.3
precision. You can use the 'highprecision' keyword to get 8.6, but be
aware this format is much easier to overflow. If you need an ASCII
format use either Amber restart, mol2, or charmm cor with the 'ext'
keyword for extended precision.

Hope this helps,
