Default Synthetic Gear Lube

With the weather the last couple of days by transmission has been telling me it's not too terribly enthusiastic about working with thick, cold lube. It's no spring chicken anymore and the 2nd gear syncro is also getting pretty balky even in good weather. So it's probably time to give 'er the good stuff for the winter so that I don't destroy the syncros with gear lube syrup. I've always just used regular Castrol Hypoy-C, but have wanted to use synthetic for a while. Thing is I can rarely find enough bottles of one weight to bother buying it. I would need about 5 for the tranny and t-case and another 3 or 4 for the axles. I'd rather get it locally or at least have a source locally. So who stocks synthetic gear lube in real quantities?
