replacement carburetors

I am looking for suitable replacement carburetors for my 1971 280S. Right now I can’t pay OEM prices for rebuilt orginals just for the sake of having originals. I just need a couple of 2 barrel carbs to keep me rolling until next summer when I bring her up to the next level. Are carburetors avail from Holley or other suppliers who won’t charge me a fortune.

I bought myself a Weber years ago, for a 280C. It ran, had an adapter plate and was an easy mount, but my gas milage got worse.
