As of this posting, Emergency Essentials has a year end clearance, closeout & overstock sale going on.  The cooking & kitchen section of that sale includes a number of Gamma Seal lids.  Check Emergency Essentials for up to the minute availability.

 

I own and use the 6 gallon buckets with Gamma Seals for my primary grain and kit storage.  See my Hands on Review.  Gamma Seal Lids are a great upgrade.  You attach the base of the unit to the bucket and leave that intact.  The lid screws on and off easily.  No more prying lids.  These are also airtight.

My rule of thumb for grain storage is 5 lbs per gallon.  With that estimation two 5 gallon buckets would hold a full 50 lb bag and two 6 gallon buckets would hold a full 55 lb bag (plus a bit more).
