It depends on your application.  Typically ASTM A588 is used for building and industrial applications and ASTM A709 for bridge work.

I think you are looking at ASTM A588 structural steel shapes which has a minimum yield strength of 50 ksi and a minimum tensile strength of 70 ksi.  I believe it is available but I would first check with your local fabricator and/or mill.

Does any one have more information weather structural steel?  What is the specification tensile strength or grade?  Are they availabe to purchase?

No, he's talking about ASTM A 709 plus ASTM A 325 Type III bolts.
