For many years Rohn has supplied Grade 5 electroplated bolts with 25G  
sections. These bolts are in no way special or different from what you can  
at a good hardware supplier. In fact, last year I needed some for a  project 
and Rohn/Radian was not yet shipping, I found exact replacements at Home  
Depot for about 50 cents each.
The joint bolts for 45G, 55G and larger towers are hot dip galvanized and  in 
this respect are special/different from the usual hardware sources. The  
galvanizing requires use of special over size nuts for everything to fit  
properly. The galvanizing also makes for a tighter fit in the leg joint which 
is  a 
good thing.
