Are there any bright (i.e. high lumen) A15 led bulbs?

I would like to replace some traditional A15 60W bulbs in my kitchen table light fixture with LEDs, but the only A15 LEDs I can find are 'weak' (i.e. around 120 to 170 lumens).

here are some examples of what i'm finding:

Feit Electric BPA15/LED/RP Accent LED A15 Bulb, Frost - Feit Electric BPA15/CL/LED/RP Accent LED A15 Bulb, Clear: Home Improvement HitLights A15 Warm White (2700K) Application 4W LED Light Bulb, Household E26 Base, 2 Pcs Pack: Home Improvement (this one says 310 but is out of stock and gets mixed reviews).

In comparison, the bulbs I have now ( GE Lighting 48698 60-Watt Reveal Ceiling Fan Clear A15 Light Bulbs, 2-Pack: Home Improvement) are 480 lumens

Do they just not exist or am I searching for the wrong thing?

Been a while since I looked but I found there to be very little availability of LEDs with lumen equivalents in the range I wanted; they seemed to have much lower outputs in general than what was available in CFL or incandescent.

The only LED bulbs I have seen that have sufficient lumen output (for me) have been specialty bulbs such as reflector bulbs for recessed lighting, MR-16 low voltage reflector bulbs and so-called "corn" bulbs.
