My search-ful must be weak. I am trying to find a peel washer for a .308 barrel (not a crush washer). Anyone know where I can get one?

Thanks!

Ordered! Thank you for the help. Seems like everyone has crush washers but no peel washers.

So what is the advantage of the shim kit of peel washer to a crush washer?

I can't speak for the OP but in my case I run a thread on sound suppressor some of the time and other times I use a YHM 5C-2. If I use a crush washer to time the 5C-2, I have to use a wrench to remove it and reinstall it along with a new crush washer each time. The shims allow me to time the 5C-2 without cranking it down with a wrench, etc.

I think that shims are a bit easier to use than peel washers. Most of the time I just use a crush washer.
