Check with an electrical supply or commercial lighting store and ask for
"Chroma 50" lamps.  If you can't find that ask for an "SPX50", which is close.
These are General Electric names.  I'm sure Philips and Sylvania/Osram have
the same thing with different names, so the store should be able to cross
reference them.
