Half-round needs to be properly sized. As you can guess, it'll need to be slightly larger than K due to the profile.
Much of the resistance to half-round has nothing to do with rotted facia. It's more to do with "this is what we always install" and the installer not wanting to deviate from their norm.
I've done a lot of half-round, but in copper, not Al.
