Default Looking for a new BCG

I have a Bushmaster and am looking for a replacement BCG so I can use my original as a backup. I would obviously want something that is an upgrade. I just plink and shoot for fun but that doesn't mean I want crap. What do you guys recommend?

How much upgrade can your wallet stand?!? This is what I use on my custom varmiter builds. Nothing I've found is more accurate....

This one is 1/2 oz heavier than stock. Helps to slow cycle times. Might be better in a carbine build.

Would like to keep it under 200 if I can. But those interest me.

For under $200 look at the LMT BCG same site. Very high quality for the price.

Fa carrier gives better reliability more mass means its going to feed better and the full rear portion means it has an easier time moving into the buffer tube.

The spikes from rogtach that xmark mentioned is a great for for what your planning to do plus he is a great guy to do business with. I've ordered from him more than once simply outstanding customer service. 124$ milspec bcg is a smoking deal with his code
