Source for unusual 316 SS fasteners?

I'm having trouble finding replacement machine screws (bolts with a round/truss head phillips) for fittings like the bob stay, whisker stays, gammon, back stay chain plate. They are mostly 3/8'' x 4-8''. They are pieces that are seen, so hex bolts wouldn't look right. I have tried all the usual suspects- JamesTown, McMaster, Fastenal. Anyone have any ideas?
