Best .325 chisel I used was the Stihl 23RS .050, but now what I see is only in .063 as 26RSC. I have been running the Oregon 21LP since the 23RS ran out but I don't like the extra baggage of the LP's safety ramped drive link. Oregon needs to make a 21LG .325  or bring back the old 76LG 3/8 chisel.

I have two Stihl saws with the 26RSC and it does real well.

I'm thinking the same too, would stretch less with the heavier drivers.
I believe the Stihl .325 like their 3/8 is .063 between the cutters on top of the drive link so evening up the drive link is a good thing. I like the Stihl's LG style depth gauge , never linked Oregons clunky LP link

Plenty of Stihl 23RS on the east side. Old 34 Oregon was smooth but slower than 21. Selling alot of 25RS62 for the 261 lately.

I picked up a little under 25' roll of 33LG because I didnt want the extra bumper link like on the 20LPX.   Read stock the 20lpx was a faster chain. But figured LG could be made faster in the end. 
Never did follow through with the testing as I got out of it and the faster chain stuff.

I forgot about the 33LG, I probably have a loop or two hanging somewhere in the used stock pile. ;D

33LG and 34LG are gone. Only the suit and tie pencil pushers in head office who had never picked up a saw liked it because it looked safer.

"" I would go with Oregon 21 or 22 lp, that would be close to rsc chain. Not a fan of the woodland pro chain.''

Whats wrong with the woodland pro chain that you didn't like?

Anybody use the k2l or k2c chain by carlton?  How is Carlton chain compared to Oregon as far as quality and staying sharp.
