I have the same problem with Fusion rounds. Sometime when firing they get stuck in the barrel. I have a 6.5x55.

I have the same problem with fusion. Shooting with 6.5x55. The spent cartridge sometimes gets stuck. However I am now shooting with Sako Deerhead ammo - with no problem. Perfect cartridge.

Ran the Sig Sauer premium monometal rounds, 165 grain, through my Helix with zero issues. Definitely the Federal Fusion rounds that were causing the ejection issues. The Sigs spit out the side like they should as does the Barnes I recently tried.

I had a Helix in a Sportster stock, I just the thought the R8 did everything better. Plus most accessories are actually available in the US. And aftermarket barrels!
