What you want is 1020 alloy DOM. You can use the 1018 alloy. It bends easier, but it isn't as strong as the 1020.
The classification you've listed looks to me like structural 'iron' coding. Afraid I'm not that familiar with that encodement.

I searched Matweb by "Carbon A513 Type 5 DOM Tube" and by "A513" and learned very little. "A513" came up common to everything from 1008 to 4130. When I searched for "A36", which is the alloy used in most structural steel shapes (I's, W's, C's, & Angles) & a number I'm used to seeing after "A", I got very specific listings. If A513 were an ASTM std like A36 then something more specific would have turned up. I think they are leaving themselves open for what ever alloy they can get cheap by not specifying it.

ASTM-A-513 Type 5 covers welded and DOM tube, normally supplied in 1020 or 1026 grade.

Ask your supplier what grade they carry.
