We consider the recently measured case of 730 eV electron-impact ionization of the ground state of helium with 205 and 500 eV coplanar outgoing electrons by Catoire et al. J. Phys. B 39 2827 (2006)]. These measurements, which are on a relative scale, show some unexpected structure and variation from the second-order distorted-wave Born approximation R-matrix and Brauner-Briggs-Klar theories. Using the convergent close-coupling method we provide an improved agreement with experiment, but some discrepancies still remain.
