There is no exact agreement between manufactures, but here are some averages.
Semi-QH 6.5" Gullet 87 Degree bars
Reg. QH 6.75" Gullet 90 Degree bars
Full QH 7" Gullet 92 Degree bars
If you Horse is too wide for FQH, Semi-QH is going in the wrong direction.
I am not sure what BC FQH is but some brands may have 1 or 2 degree flatter angle that would help.
