Charles,

BT-101 ( 3.938" O,D, ) . . . https://www.erockets.biz/bt-101

Another option is "LOC" 4" diameter tube . . . ( You can peel inner layers to lighten it, if desired )

BT-101 is thinner and lighter weight than the Mega DRM tubing or anything from PML/LOC or other HPR tubing. If you want to keep something LPR, it's your choice. If you want to go HPR,
heavier tubing is the way to go.

I had been working out of the eRockets catalog, but I see that Wildman has the LOC tubing. Thanks for the suggestion.

I like building near the MPR/HPR line.

Charles,

If you like the BT-101, you could always take another length of tubing, slit it lengthwise, trim to fit, and use it to double the wall thickness of the BT-101. Move FAST, during gluing !
