I use steel 55 gallon drums with plastic funnel insert from Academy, drum holds 300 lbs. Academy has 40 lb. bag for $ 4.99 and Wally World for $ 4.86. The super sack (2,000 lb.) bag at the grain elevator is $ 180.00. Be sure if you buy the bulk corn to sift it. The pieces of cob and debris can damage a timer type feeder. Also has a lot of dust, which can gum up the electric motor with our high humidity. By the time I sift and re-bag the corn (time is money), I'll just keep getting the clean bag corn. My 2 cents.
