    Try 25/60 for harder wood.

    Nice little ‘stash’!

    This is what I use for most of my bucking, regardless of wood type.
    Some worked over 404 square.

    It's OK, mostly 3/8" full chisel, but there are some oddballs in there.

    A good portion of those chains came from the US to me.
    A big THANK YOU to all the members that gifted me some chains, mostly Vanguard.
    An extra big thank You to Sondre @SOS Ridgerider for taking care of shipping! :)

    No help for the OP, but am happy to see I'm not the only one that likes Vanguard chain. It files nice, and throws great chips for me. I recently got some loops of EXL from @PA Dan , which I'm very happy with. Highly recommend him OP if you want to try EXL.

    At some point I'll do a side-by-side comparison of a freshly filed Vanguard vs EXL. I also only run full chisel chain, but I'm just making firewood ;)

    Square ground Stihl chisel. I've cut quite a bit of locust over the years. Your chain's going to go away no matter what. Round goes away slower. Square is all at once.
