BCM- About $200, but excellent.
Spike's- The ROG link is a square deal on a very good BCG.
PSA- Same quality/price as the Spike's...I'll bet ROG delivers quicker, LOL.
AIM- Has some excellent BCG for $80-100, but they're often out of stock.

Those are what I'd look at. BCM is my go-to, but I might not spend that much to upgrade a Bushy. I've owned all of the BCGs above, and have been quite satisfied with each. The $80 and $100 AIM Surplus BCGs are very good...but constantly in and out of stock.

ROG's Spike's looks like a fine option to me.

The good ones that are affordable have been mentioned, I have. Nickel boron carrier from Rainier that was $170 on sale, Aim has Black Nitrite carriers that are excellent for $125, Spikes and BCM do not deal in junk. PSA "premium" is good to go, they also have a ni-boron that is good. The choices are endless so it is up to you.

One word, yes. Check out the rainer arms raptor, best handle made in my opinion.

I second this suggestion! I love this charging handle. I've used a few of them.

Looks pretty cool. I will check it out when I have more funds. I'm thinking about replacing every part my Bushy until every part of it is upgraded and then I will have two, my Bushy and a custom build, Kind of a slow build.
I also have got the itch for a .308 though built for accuracy.
I must admit I have heard mixed opinions on the Bushy but I have been quite happy with it. It eats everything I feed it.
