UltraKarl normally has the barrells in stock. He is a sponsor here. Utlramatic Feeders is the name of his outfit. He is located north west side of Houston.

If you are in the Houston area I usually pick up my metal at Northshore Steel in Channelview, or Triple S Steel in Houston. Just the dang prices are so high.

I buy all mine at Norton Metals in nw Fort Worth, and Willbanks of NE28th. Norton is very good to work with, regardless of the size of your order.
It will be very hard to find any used, with scrap being as high as it is.

Most of the steel places I go to have an area that has random pieces or used pieces for sale....it still will cost per pound weight....

I will also second Nortan Metals.
Also try the metal scrap yards that buy scrap iron. There is one on Hwy 1187 2 miles east of I-35 in Rendon just south of Ft. Worth
