Ya, for 5.0's, i think B-cams are now really out of date as far as gains vs $, but I could be wrong. And yes, they are FMS cams

im running a B cam in my v8 swap. If you have a summit catalog they have to FRPP Cams and it lists the sepcs of all their cams. Suprisingly the B cam is not too far off of the E cam.

yes 303 look like it would work good. i would need an F cam but, my 302 is non roller

I'm thinking, I'm going with the Lunati Hydraulic Flat Tappet Camshafts Advertised Duration 272/282, Lift .517/.536, Price $159.69, Summit Part Number LUN-306A5LUN

but I'm steel looking

Yea B-cam is an old school ford cam. Its pretty good and alot of guys swear by it. As for you need an F cam, no chance imo. I have one. I hate it. Its main application is for turbo setups. The torque curve is way to high.
