Doug,

I think the consensus with 5/16"HT is that it is as good as 3/8"BBB. Possible downsides include thee chain not being as heavy, and thus not inducing as much catenary, and rust have a higher depreciating ratio due to there being less metal.

Best Marine Imports still has 5/16" HT for $2.00/ft. It's US made and quality stuff. I'm going to buy 350 one of these days when I have $700 sitting around:
BMI Chains

Cheers,
Aaron N.
