Stihl makes the chains at every thickness, .043, .050, .056 and .063.
I prefer using chains at .050 at my 50 to 80ccm saws, at smaller saws I use .043 - thats a "lot" of performance increase.
Maybe Philbert Will post his literature on Stihl Chain... I was reflecting on 3/8" chain but failed to mention that.

Ok, all my 3/8 chains - both regular and ripping chains are .050. Those are used on 70 to 80ccm saws.
But for the standard Logosol mill with a MS661, the Stihl ripping chain recommended is .050 - and its the best ;)
