Default Moultrie 30 Gallon Barrel Lids?

So, I have a few of the Moultrie Pro Hanging feeders, 30 gallon Barrel...
https://www.moultriefeeders.com/moul...hanging-feeder

Been very happy, but recently a hole rusted through the lid, and I patched with duct tape!

Looked on line, cant find them anywhere. Called Moutrie and they sent me a link to this:
https://www.moultriefeeders.com/30-gal-galvanized-lid

The old lid locks down, this looks like it just slips on. Anyone else thinks this is not racoon proof?

Know where I can find 30 gallon barrel lids, Metal?

Just found these:

https://bascousa.com/drum-accessorie...lon-drums.html

https://bascousa.com/container-compo...king-ring.html

Which would you go with?

That's what I use on my 55gal feeders. Probably work fine on a thirty with a cinder block on top.

The lids that are recessed and hold water should be thrown out from the beginning
