The Home  Depots and Lowes in the Tampa area do NOT carry grade 5  either in  
Galvanized or Stainless.  If you live in a fairly large city,   check the big 
specialty houses that carry just fasteners, screws, bolts  and  such.  The 
problem you may face is a minimum order,  generally around  $50.

Bill's advise is best, but I am fairly sure I did but grade 5 bolts at  
either Home Depot or Lowes in Fredericksburg, VA or Alexandria, VA.
So, maybe it varies with Home Depot and Lowes, and maybe not.  Look  for the 
three tick marks on the bolt head.  Whatever I bought was  galvanized, and not 
stainless.  I find the latter undesirable for the  price, because it is too 
easy to paint galvanized hardware for long term  protection and it is stronger.
