Only if it is worn out, you want to increase chain speed or go to .404 chain.

So that is where my confusion lies.  What is the chain designation that I should be shopping for?
The EXJ youíre quoting is a full skip chain with a chisel cutter, EXL is full comp chain with chisel cutter.
75 on Oregon stands for 3/8 pitch .063 gauge drivers and presets.
The chain Iím normally run is a 115 driver 75CL or 75CK once in a great while 75CJ this means itís a 3/8 pitch 63 gauge full comp square ground chain for production falling application.

Never put a new chain on a well used sprocket....you're asking for it to grenade. You can however, put a used chain on a newer sprocket.

I have a lifetime supply of new .404 sprockets, so I don't know how much they cost anymore. Cheap insurance though for making sure they never grenade on you.

A 395 will pull a 32" bar running 404 full comp semi chisel with ease in some of the hardest woods in the world. That's my regular work saw setup.

If yours is running 3/8" and cutting slow it's either blunt/ pinched/ or got the wrong sprocket. No call for skip chain with that, unless you're milling. Speaking of which it's not a milling chain is it... that'll slow them down some in a crosscut.

I think a 395 needs a .58 or .63 type of chain.  The .5 is a little too small and gets distorted in the bar by the torque.  

3/8 x .63 in a 32 inch bar seems to be the sweet spot for that saw.  It doesn't matter if it's full chisel or full skip.

.063 is almost non existent in western Canada. I worked for a chain distributor and have never seen it in 3/8, only .404 for the big Stihls. We had some .325 x .063 but gave it away, nobody bought it.

Been running .050" on my 394/395 for 25 years, no problems.

Husky H83 is Oregon 75CJ. So, in addition to is being skip and .063, it is also square ground. Touching it up with a round file will certainly degrade it's performance. Could maybe make it usable by filing it back a ways, but my guess is you probably ought to toss it and start with a fresh loop.

It was "existent" around here once when I ordered ten 395's and typed in the wrong SKU.  >:(

Any tips on sharpening the CJ/H83 chain?  It looks simple enough but looks can be deceiving.

The first bit of advice is to not damage the chain. Dulling is not an issue, but if you rock it bad, it is time consuming to hand file it back to cutting fast. I use a double-bevel-chisel-bit-file for square ground chain. The intersection of the two planes that makes up the point is critical, as is keeping the gullet opened up. An improperly filed square chain is slower than a good round ground chain.
