My understaning is that it is valid for 6 months.

But that clock starts ticking from the date it is issued by the FBI, not when you received it.
Presumably, you then sent it off for an apostille.

6 months from the date on the document.

Officially 6 months but recruiters start to get nervous the closer it is to being out of date.
It's nice to be important but more important to be nice.
