Shoot a pic with any type of 50 next to what you have, you don't even need to mic it.
If you are really interested, I might be able to hook you up with a guy who can x-ray them in Loisville.
What are you basing that on Bro? Do you have any of these rounds, and if you do, do they have the same Headstamp as these? Have you looked at the ones currently listed on Gunbroker, they look just like these, are they fake? I've seen and held several of these rounds and there are variation in the tip color (Silver/White) from different manufactures. These are rare and most people usually only have 1 or 2 of them so I don't see how anyone could say that this looks fake compared to that unless they have a very large collection with different headstamps.
As far as me trying to scam someone, look at my Feedback (+110). I didn't post this to debate fake vs real, but since that was posted, I asked what to look for in a fake. Like I said before, post a pic of your rounds without another round next to it and I doubt anyone can tell anything about the tip.
Cockroach is the gentleman who was nice enough to scan everyone's rounds a few months back. He got to look at a bunch of real and fake rounds. He probably knows what to look for.
As stated earlier, try to get a picture of your MK211 rds vs a regular AP, API, etc. We can probably tell by the picture.
