Has anyone found another company to use that's even close in price? I used to get 40lbs of really good ground beef for @$100 but I have had no luck finding anyone online or locally yet with comparable pricing.

Have you tried restaurant suppliers? If you're buying 40 lb lots they'd likely be willing to deal with you.

BE CAREFUL..... those cheapest burger can easily be "tube" burger pre-processed 10 lb tube ground beef (coarse or fine grind) thats part of a million pound batch from god knows where..

its the cheapest stock on the market..

if I were looking for the best quality cheapest ground beef/burger..
I would ask a butcher at a meat market/butcher shop or smaller iga store... what they can give you for the lowest cost on a "whole chuck shoulder clod"

the xt's (extra trims') are still below the price you stated (2.50lb) ask if you bought the whole piece... around 20lbs if they will grind it..

briskets use to be one of the cheapest primals to grind.....not anymore now its chuck clods and bottom flats

I sell millions of pounds of meat to grocery stores...…. you got some good free advice..
again...do NOT buy from tubes...… or whats shipped to stores .... buy the old fashioned real steak trimmings..

if you dont know any butchers call around to stores that still have them...….but make sure they grind on site....
