What are you using it for, and do you mean flour or wheat berries? If you're talking about flour, hard white wheat would have a similar protein level but with a milder flavour than hard red. Generally bread flour is made from hard wheat and all-purpose flour is a blend of hard and soft wheat, so if you can't find flour specifically labelled as hard red wheat just look for bread flour - it may not be red but should have similar properties for baking purposes.
